Chapter 6. Maximizing the Rate of Return

    Abstract

    In stopping rule problems that are repeated in time, it is often appropriate to maximize the average return per unit of time. This leads to the problem of choosing a stopping rule N to maximize the ratio EY N /EN. The reason we wish to maximize this ratio rather than the true expected average per stage, E(Y N /N), is that if the problem is repeated… (More)
