dc.description.abstract This course covers the basic models and solution techniques for problems of sequential decision making under uncertainty (stochastic control). We will consider optimal control of a dynamical system over both a finite and an infinite number of stages (finite and infinite horizon). We will also discuss some approximation methods for problems involving large state spaces. Applications of dynamic programming in a variety of fields will be covered in recitations. en_US
