Probability methods for the convergence of finite difference approximations to partial differential-integral equations by Harold J Kushner( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper applies some results on weak convergence of probability measures to the problem of convergence of finite difference approximations to a broad class of degenerate elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations. The equations are of type which arise in stochastic control theory and, generally, have only weak solutions. Interest in the problem stems from interest in stochastic control theory, and in numerical methods for the solution of stochastic control problems. The results are of interest in stochastic control theory and in numerical analysis. Some conditions are stated, the problem is discussed along with its probabilistic interpretation. (Author)
Approximations, existence, and numerical procedures for optimal stochastic controls by Harold J Kushner( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the paper, the authors prove several convergence results for a numerical method in optimal stochastic control, based on finite difference approximations to the non-linear Bellman partial differential equation for the optimal cost. As a very useful by-product to the main development, the authors obtain new existence results for optimal controls, and interesting results on the approximation of a controlled diffusion by a controlled Markov chain. The methods and results are new, and depend on results concerning weak convergence of probability measures. The methods seem to be quite powerful, and have applications to many other problems in approximation and control. (Author)

Versatile methods for the sequential Monte Carlo optimization of unconstrained stochastic systems by Harold J Kushner( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report contains 2 papers. The first paper discusses a versatile family of Monte Carlo Methods for the sequential optimization of stochastic systems. The method selects a sequence of successive one-dimensional search directions, defines a (stochastic) search in each of the directions, where the data used for both the one-dimensional search and the direction determination are merely noise-corrupted observations on the system; In the second paper, Kesten had proposed a method for adjusting the coefficients of a scalar stochastic approximation process, and proved w.p.1. convergence. A family of multidimensional processes for function minimization are treated here. Each method consists of a sequence truncated one-dimensional procedures of the Kesten type. The methods seem to offer a number of advantages over the usual Kiefer-Wolfowitz procedures, and are more natural analogs of the schemes in common use in deterministic optimization theory. (Author)
Decomposition of systems governed by Markov chains by Harold J Kushner( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper applies the Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition technique to control systems governed by Markov chains, and the three usual types of costs: (a) the average cost attained until a target state is reached, (b) discounted cost, (c) average cost per unit time. Additional systems constraints are allowed. A technique for subdividing or essentially decomposing the problem is developed, and a Markov interpretation is given to each subsystem. The special significance, for this problem, of the extreme points and rays of the subproblem, is discussed. (Author)

Inviscid modes of instability in spiral flow by E. T. Y Lee( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stability of an inviscid fluid between rotating cylinders with an axial flow is considered under the small gap approximation. When the axial flow is small compared to the rotational velocity, a new perturbation method differing in several respects from the conventional method was devised. It was found that the presence of the axial flow has a stabilizing effect, and that the correction to the growth rates of the pure rotation case is of second-order in the axial to rotational velocity ratio. Furthermore, the instabilities are confined to only a finite range of wave numbers
