Lecture 6: Value Function Approximation Introduction Value Function Approximation So far we have represented value function by a lookup table Every state s has an entry V(s) Or every state-action pair s;a has an entry Q(s;a) Problem with large MDPs: There are too many states and/or actions to . Series Approximation Methods in Statistics (Lecture Notes in Statistics (88)) "This book provides several important theoretical results that are relevant to Edgeworth and saddlepoint approximation to distribution functions, as well as to densities, in a simple and concise manner. The current edition showcases a rich and expanded list of Cited by: Hermann Weyl considered value distribution theory to be the greatest mathematical achievement of the first half of the 20th century. The present lectures show that this beautiful theory is still growing. An important tool is complex approximation and some of the lectures are devoted to this topic. The only nontrivial part of this is that X +Y has a normal distribution. Aside: There are many fascinating properties of the normal family—enough to fill a book, see, e.g., Bryc [1]. Here’s one [1, Theorem , p. 39]: If X and Y are independent and identically distributed and X and (X + Y)/ √ 2 have the same distribution, then X has a File Size: 1MB.

Piecewise linear approximation of invariant distribution • Choose an initial distribution Λ0 over the grid A×Y. One choice is, for example, for every pair (ak,yj) ∈ A×Y Λ0(a k,yj) = ak −a ¯a −a Γ∗ j as if the two variables were independent and the distribution over assets a File Size: KB.
