Reinforcement learning is one of the major neural-network approaches to learning con- trol. This in turn interprets and justi es the widely adopted Gaus-sian exploration in RL, beyond its simplicity for sampling. 2.1 Stochastic Optimal Control We will consider control problems which can be modeled by a Markov decision process (MDP).

Theory of Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) By Konrad Rawlik, Marc Toussaint and Sethu Vijayakumar. Reinforcement learning has been successful at finding optimal control policies for a single agent operating in a stationary environment, specifically a Markov decision process. Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation and the optimal control distribution for general entropy-regularized stochastic con trol problems in Section 3. Reinforcement learning (RL) o ers powerful algorithms to search for optimal controllers of systems with nonlinear, possibly stochastic dynamics that are unknown or highly uncertain. Optimal control focuses on a subset of problems, but solves these problems very well, and has a rich history. Key words.

Top REINFORCEMENT LEARNING AND OPTIMAL CONTROL BOOK, Athena Scientific, July 2019 The book is available from the publishing company Athena Scientific , or from Amazon.com . We carry out a complete analysis of the problem in the linear{quadratic (LQ) setting and deduce that the optimal control distribution for balancing exploitation and exploration is Gaussian. $\begingroup$ The question is not "how can the joint distribution be useful in general", but "how a Joint PDF would help with the "Optimal Stochastic Control of a Loss Function"", although this answer may also answer the original question, if you are familiar with optimal stochastic control, etc. classical relaxed stochastic control. Stochastic optimal control emerged in the 1950’s, building on what was already a mature community for deterministic optimal control that emerged in the early 1900’s and has been adopted around the world. •Markov Decision Processes •Bellman optimality equation, Dynamic Programming, Value Iteration Optimal Exercise/Stopping of Path-dependent American Options Optimal Trade Order Execution (managing Price Impact) Optimal Market-Making (Bids and Asks managing Inventory Risk) By treating each of the problems as MDPs (i.e., Stochastic Control) … 13 Oct 2020 • Jing Lai • Junlin Xiong.

Bertsekas Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems Massachusetts Institute of Technology March 2019 Bertsekas (M.I.T.) This paper addresses the average cost minimization problem for discrete-time systems with multiplicative and additive noises via reinforcement learning. Unfortunately, the stochastic optimal control using actor-critic RL is still an unexplored research topic due to the difficulties of designing updating laws and proving stability and convergence. This chapter is going to focus attention on two specific communities: stochastic optimal control, and reinforcement learning. stochastic optimal control with path integrals. This review mainly covers artificial-intelligence approaches to RL, from the viewpoint of the control engineer.
