Reinforcement Learning and Control as Probabilistic Inference: Tutorial and Review. Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control by Dimitri P. Bertsekas Massachusetts Institute of Technology DRAFT TEXTBOOK This is a draft of a textbook that is scheduled to be finalized in 2019, … /FormType 1 /FormType 1 Conventionally,decision making problems formalized as reinforcement learning or optimal control have been cast into a framework that aims to generalize probabilistic models by augmenting them with utilities or rewards, where the reward function is viewed as an extrinsic signal. Dynamic programming, the model-based analogue of reinforcement learning, has been used to solve the optimal control problem in both of these scenarios. Abstract: This article describes the use of principles of reinforcement learning to design feedback controllers for discrete- and continuous-time dynamical systems that combine features of adaptive control and optimal control. >> The date of last revision is given below. x��WMo1��+�R��k���M�"U����(,jv)���c{��.��JE{gg���gl���l���rl7ha ��F& RA�а�`9������7���'���xU(� ����g��"q�Tp\$fi"����g�g �I�Q�(�� �A���T���Xݟ�@*E3��=:��mM�T�{����Qj���h�:��Y˸�Z��P����*}A�M��=V~��y��7� g\|�\����=֭�JEH��\'�ں�r܃��"$%�g���d��0+v�`�j�O*�KI�����x��>�v�0�8�Wފ�f>�0�R��ϖ�T���=Ȑy�� �D�H�bE��^/]*��|���'Q��v���2'�uN��N�J�:��M��Q�����i�J�^�?�N��[k��NV�ˁwA[��-�{���`��`���U��V�`l�}n�����T�q��4�ǌ��JD��m�a�-�.�6�k\��7�SLP���r�. /Resources 31 0 R Description: The purpose of the book is to consider large and challenging multistage decision problems, which can be solved in principle by dynamic programming and optimal control, but their exact solution is computationally intractable. >> /Subtype /Form The performance of conventional NMPC can be unsatisfactory in the presence of uncertainties.
