Selected Topics on ContinuousTime Controlled Markov Chains and Markov Games
ISBN: 9781848168480 / Angielski / Twarda / 279 str. This book concerns continuoustime controlled Markov chains, also known as continuoustime Markov decision processes. They form a class of stochastic control problems in which a single decisionmaker wishes to optimize a given objective function. This book is also concerned with Markov games, where two decisionmakers (or players) try to optimize their own objective function. Both decisionmaking processes appear in a large number of applications in economics, operations research, engineering, and computer science, among other areas.An extensive, selfcontained, uptodate analysis of basic...

Fin Shape Thermal Optimization Using Bejan's Constructal Theory
ISBN: 9781608456079 / Angielski / Miękka / 220 str. The book contains research results obtained by applying Bejan's Constructal Theory to the study and therefore the optimization of fins, focusing on Tshaped and Yshaped ones. Heat transfer from finned surfaces is an example of combined heat transfer natural or forced convection on the external parts of the fin, and conducting along the fin. Fin's heat exchange is rather complex, because of variation of both temperature along the fin and convective heat transfer coefficient. Furthermore possible presence of more fins invested by the same fluid flow has to be considered. Classical fin theory...

Introduction to the Fractional Calculus of Variations
ISBN: 9781848169661 / Angielski / Twarda / 292 str. This invaluable book provides a broad introduction to the fascinating and beautiful subject of Fractional Calculus of Variations (FCV). In 1996, FVC evolved in order to better describe nonconservative systems in mechanics. The inclusion of nonconservatism is extremely important from the point of view of applications. Forces that do not store energy are always present in real systems. They remove energy from the systems and, as a consequence, Noether's conservation laws cease to be valid. However, it is still possible to obtain the validity of Noether's principle using FCV. The...

Performance Bounds and Suboptimal Policies for MultiPeriod Investment
ISBN: 9781601986726 / Angielski / Miękka / 94 str. Performance Bounds and Suboptimal Policies for MultiPeriod Investment examines dynamic trading of a portfolio of assets in discrete periods over a finite time horizon, with arbitrary timevarying distribution of asset returns. The goal is to maximize the total expected revenue from the portfolio, while respecting constraints on the portfolio like a required terminal portfolio and leverage and risk limits. The revenue takes into account the gross cash generated in trades, transaction costs, and costs associated with the positions, such as fees for holding short positions. The model that is...

Proximal Algorithms
ISBN: 9781601987167 / Angielski / Miękka / 130 str. Proximal Algorithms discusses proximal operators and proximal algorithms, and illustrates their applicability to standard and distributed convex optimization in general and many applications of recent interest in particular. Much like Newton's method is a standard tool for solving unconstrained smooth optimization problems of modest size, proximal algorithms can be viewed as an analogous tool for nonsmooth, constrained, largescale, or distributed versions of these problems. They are very generally applicable, but are especially wellsuited to problems of substantial recent interest involving...

Dynamic Network Energy Management Via Proximal Message Passing
ISBN: 9781601987143 / Angielski / Miękka / 70 str. Dynamic Network Energy Management via Proximal Message Passing presents a fully decentralized method for dynamic network energy management based on message passing between devices. It considers a network of devices, such as generators, fixed loads, deferrable loads, and storage devices, each with its own dynamic constraints and objective, connected by AC and DC lines. The problem is to minimize the total network objective subject to the device and line constraints, over a given time horizon. This is a large optimization problem, with variables for consumption or generation for each device,...

From Bandits to MonteCarlo Tree Search: The Optimistic Principle Applied to Optimization and Planning
ISBN: 9781601987662 / Angielski / Miękka / 146 str. From Bandits to MonteCarlo Tree Search: The Optimistic Principle Applied to Optimization and Planning covers several aspects of the "optimism in the face of uncertainty" principle for large scale optimization problems under finite numerical budget. The monograph's initial motivation came from the empirical success of the socalled "MonteCarlo Tree Search" method popularized in Computer Go and further extended to many other games as well as optimization and planning problems. It lays out the theoretical foundations of the field by characterizing the complexity of the optimization problems...

Anintroduction to Continuous Optimization / Second Edition
ISBN: 9789144060774 / Angielski / Miękka / 484 str. Andreasson, etal., provide a basis for the analysis of optimization models and candidate optimal solutions for continuous optimization models. Elementary but rigorous mathematics and linear algebra underlie the workings of convexity and duality, and necessary/sufficient local/global optimality conditions for continuous optimization problems. Natural algorithms are developed from these optimality conditions, and their most important convergence characteristics are analyzed. The authors answer many more "Why?" and "Why not?" than "How?" questions.
