Learning Automata: An Introduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This self-contained introductory text on the behavior of learning automata focuses on how a sequential decision-maker with a finite number of choices responds in a random environment. Topics include fixed structure automata, variable structure stochastic automata, convergence, 0 and S models, nonstationary environments, interconnected automata and games, and applications of learning automata. A must for all students of stochastic algorithms, this treatment is the work of two well-known scientists and is suitable for a one-semester graduate course in automata theory and stochastic algorithms. This volume also provides a fine guide for independent study and a reference for students and professionals in operations research, computer science, artificial intelligence, and robotics. The authors have provided a new preface for this edition.

Synopsis:

Written by a pair of experts, this self-contained introductory text focuses on how a sequential decision-maker with a finite number of choices responds in a random environment. 1989 edition.
