Algorithms for Reinforcement Learning
by Csaba Szepesvari
Publisher: Morgan and Claypool Publishers 2009
Number of pages: 98
In this book, we focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the powerful theory of dynamic programming. We give a fairly comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, note a large number of state of the art algorithms, followed by the discussion of their theoretical properties and limitations.
