Value Function Approximation Methods for Linearly-solvable Markov Decision Process Mingyuan Zhong Chair of the Supervisory Committee: Professor Emanual Todorov Department of Applied Mathematics Optimal control provides an appealing machinery to complete complicated control tasks with limited prior knowledge. Both global methods and online trajectory(More)
Currently some of the most difficult problems in computational science involve moving interfaces between flowing or deforming media. Typically partial differential equations must be satisfied on each side of the interface (often different equations on each side) and these solutions coupled through relationships or jump conditions that must hold at the(More)
This article will appear in the forthcoming Princeton Companion to Mathematics, edited by Timothy Gowers with June Barrow-Green, to be published by Princeton University Press. In preparing this essay I have benefitted from the advice of many colleagues, who corrected a number of errors of fact and emphasis. I have not always followed their advice, however,(More)
PIMS looks forward to the Seventh Industrial Problem Solving Workshop which will be held at the University of Calgary next year. Thank you to Jack Macki from the University of Alberta who edited these proceedings. I would also like extend my thanks to the other organizers Chris Bose (U.
