Applications of Markov Decision Processes in Communication Networks: a Survey Eitan Altman To cite this version: Eitan Altman. A partially observable Markov decision process (POMDP) is a generalization of a Markov decision process which permits uncertainty regarding the state of a Markov process and allows for state information acquisition. This paper is a survey of recent results on continuous-time Markov decision processes (MDPs) withunbounded transition rates, and reward rates that may beunbounded from above and from below. We aim to do this by reaching the maximum readership with works of the highest quality.

For terms and use, please refer to our Terms and Conditions CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): In many real-world applications of Markov Decision Processes (MPDs), the number of states is so large as to be infeasible for computation. We then make the leap up to Markov Decision Processes, and find that we've already done 82% of the work needed to compute not only the long term rewards of each MDP state, but also the optimal action to take in each state.

In the first few years of an ongoing survey of applications of Markov decision processes where the results have been imple mented or have had some influence on decisions, few applica tions have been identified where the results have been implemented but there appears to be an increasing effort to State abstraction is a means by which similar states are aggregated, resulting in reduction of the state space size. In mathematics, a Markov decision process is a discrete-time stochastic control process. plications of Markov decision processes in which the results of the studies have been implemented, have had some influ ence on the actual decisions, or in which the analyses are based on real data.
