Learning near-optimal policies with Bellman-residual minimization based fitted policy iteration and a single sample path
Abstract. We consider batch reinforcement learning problems in continuous space, expected total discounted-reward Markovian Decision Problems. As opposed to previous theoretical wo...

Estimation and Approximation Bounds for Gradient-Based Reinforcement Learning
We model reinforcement learning as the problem of learning to control a Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (  ¢¡¤£¦¥§  ), and focus on gradient ascent approache...

A simulation-based method for aggregating Markov chains
— This paper addresses model reduction for a Markov chain on a large state space. A simulation-based framework is introduced to perform state aggregation of the Markov chain base...
