In this paper, an optimal control problem over a "hybrid Markov chain" (HMC) is studied. An HMC can be thought of as a traditional MC with continuous time dynamics pertaining to each node; from a different perspective, it can be regarded as a class of hybrid system with random discrete switches induced by an embedded MC. As a consequence of this setting, the index to be maximized, which depends on the dynamics, is the expected value of a nondeterministic cost function. After obtaining a closed… CONTINUE READING
