Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction
by Richard S. Sutton, Andrew G. Barto
Publisher: The MIT Press 2017
Number of pages: 445
Reinforcement learning is a computational approach to learning whereby an agent tries to maximize the total amount of reward it receives when interacting with a complex, uncertain environment. In this book, Richard Sutton and Andrew Barto provide a clear and simple account of the key ideas and algorithms of reinforcement learning. Their discussion ranges from the history of the field's intellectual foundations to the most recent developments and applications. The only necessary mathematical background is familiarity with elementary concepts of probability.

This book discusses the principles of learning algorithms for deep architectures, in particular those exploiting as building blocks unsupervised learning of single-layer models such as Restricted Boltzmann Machines, used to construct deeper models.

The starting point is the formulation of of an optimal control problem and deriving the different types of solutions and algorithms from there. These lecture notes aim at supporting this unified view with a unified notation wherever possible.
