In the course lectures, we have discussed a lot regarding unconstrained Markov De-cision Process (MDP). When a system is controlled over a period of time, a policy (or strat egy) is required to determine what action to take in the light of what is known about the system at the time of choice, that is, in terms of its state, i. << /S /GoTo /D (Outline0.2.4.8) >> x��\_s�F��O�{���,.�/����dfs��M�l��۪Mh���#�^���|�h�M��'��U�L��l�h4�`�������ޥ��U��_ݾ���y�rIn�^�ޯ���p�*SY�r��ݯ��~_�ڮ)�S��l�I��ͧ�0�z#��O����UmU���c�n]�ʶ-[j��*��W���s��X��r]�%�~}>�:���x��w�}��whMWbeL�5P�������?��=\��*M�ܮ�}��J;����w���\�����pB'y�ы���F��!R����#�V�;��T�Zn���uSvծ8P�ùh�SW�m��I*�װy��p�=�s�A�i�T�,�����u��.�|Wq���Tt��n��C��\P��և����LrD�3I We consider a discrete-time constrained Markov decision process under the discounted cost optimality criterion. A Constrained Markov Decision Process (CMDP) (Alt-man,1999) is an MDP with additional constraints which must be satisﬁed, thus restricting the set of permissible policies for the agent. requirements in decision making can be modeled as constrained Markov decision pro-cesses [11]. 10 0 obj endobj endobj << /S /GoTo /D (Outline0.2) >> Given a stochastic process with state s kat time step k, reward function r, and a discount factor 0 < <1, the constrained MDP problem (Application Example) This paper studies a discrete-time total-reward Markov decision process (MDP) with a given initial state distribution. work of constrained Markov Decision Process (MDP), and report on our experience in an actual deployment of a tax collections optimization system at New York State Depart-ment of Taxation and Finance (NYS DTF). 57 0 obj 26 0 obj 21 0 obj %���� PY - 2019/2/5.
