This extensive work, aside from its focus on the mainstream dynamic programming and optimal control topics, relates to our Abstract Dynamic Programming Athena Scientific,a synthesis of classical research on the foundations of dynamic programming with modern approximate dynamic programming theory, and the new class of semicontractive models, Stochastic Optimal Control: The treatment focuses on basic unifying themes, and conceptual foundations.

The book ends with a discussion of continuous time models, and is indeed the most challenging for the reader.

A major expansion of the discussion of approximate DP neuro-dynamic programmingwhich allows the practical application of dynamic programming to large and complex problems.

Between this and the first volume, there is an amazing diversity of ideas presented in a unified and accessible manner. I also has a full chapter on suboptimal control and many related techniques, such as open-loop feedback controls, limited lookahead policies, rollout algorithms, and model predictive control, to name a few. ChanVahid Sarhangian Each Chapter is peppered with several example problems, which illustrate the computational challenges and also correspond either to benchmarks extensively used in the literature or pose major unanswered research questions.

From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. Control and Optimization It illustrates the versatility, power, and generality of the method with many examples and applications from engineering, operations research, and other fields.


The first volume is oriented towards modeling, conceptualization, and finite-horizon problems, but also includes a substantive introduction to infinite horizon problems that is suitable for classroom use. The first account of the emerging methodology of Monte Carlo linear algebra, which extends the approximate DP methodology to broadly applicable problems involving large-scale regression and systems of linear equations.

This is a book that both packs quite a punch and offers plenty of bang for your buck. In conclusion the book is highly recommendable for an introductory course on dynamic programming and its applications.

For instance, it presents both deterministic and stochastic control problems, in both dnyamic and continuous-time, and it also presents the Pontryagin minimum principle for deterministic systems together with several extensions. Contains a substantial amount of new material, as well as a reorganization of old material. I and II, 3rd Edition: Skip to search form Skip to main content.

Dynamic Programming and Optimal Control

This new edition offers an expanded treatment of approximate dynamic programming, synthesizing a substantial and growing research literature on the topic. With its p.bertskas mixture of dynamiic and applications, its many examples and exercises, its unified treatment of the subject, and its polished presentation style, it is eminently suited for classroom use or self-study.


This paper has 6, citations. II, 4th edition Vol. The main strengths of the book are the clarity of the exposition, the quality and variety of the examples, and its coverage of the most recent advances.

Bertsekas’ book to be a very useful reference to which they will come back time and again to find an obscure reference to related work, use one of the examples in their own papers, and draw inspiration from the idmitri connections exposed between major techniques.

It should be viewed as the principal DP textbook and reference work at present. Semantic Scholar estimates that this publication has dnamic, citations based on the available data. At the end of each Chapter a brief, but substantial, literature review is presented for each of the topics covered.

Approximate DP has become the central focal point of this volume.

I see the Preface for details: DenardoUriel G. PhD students and post-doctoral researchers will find Prof. Still I think most readers will find there too at the very least one or two things to take back home with them. This is achieved through the presentation of formal models for special cases of the optimal control problem, along with an outstanding synthesis or survey, andd that offers a comprehensive and detailed account of major ideas that make up the state of the art in approximate methods.

BobitiMircea Lazar ArXiv The second volume is oriented towards mathematical analysis and computation, p.bertsekae infinite horizon problems extensively, and provides an up-to-date account of approximate large-scale dynamic programming and reinforcement learning.

Among its special features, the book: The book is a rigorous yet highly readable and comprehensive source on all aspects relevant to DP: II see the Preface for details:
