CONTRACTION MAPPINGS IN THE THEORY UNDERLYING DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING* ERIC V. DENARDOf 1. Introduction. This article formulates and analyzes a broad class of optimi- zation problems including many, but not all, dynamic programming problems. A liey ingredient of the formulation is the abstraction of three widely sharedCited by: In mathematics, a contraction mapping, or contraction or contractor, on a metric space (M, d) is a function f from M to itself, with the property that there is some nonnegative real number ≤.

This article reviews the history and theory of dynamic programming (DP), a recursive method of solving sequential decision problems under uncertainty. It discusses computational algorithms for the numerical solution of DP problems, and an important limitation in our ability to solve realistic large-scale dynamic programming problems, the.

Book description: This book is an effective, concise text for students and researchers that combines the tools of dynamic programming with numerical Author: John Rust.

A general procedure is presented for constructing and analyzing approximations of dynamic programming models. The models considered are the monotone contraction operator models of Denardo (Denardo, E. Contraction mappings in the theory underlying dynamic programming.

The main purpose of this introductory chapter is two-fold, first to give an overview of the major issues addressed in the book, on a chapter by chapter basis, and second, to set up some of the basic analytical framework which we will often refer to throughout the book.

Dynamic programming is a strategy for the solution and analysis of certain types of optimization problems. The technique of dynamic programming will be of paramount use in the analysis of the multiperiod financial problems.

Contraction mappings in the theory underlying dynamic programming. SIAM Rev. 9 ]. Certain Markov decision processes, stochastic games, and risk-sensitive Markov decision processes can be formulated in this notation.

This paper deals with an infinite-horizon discrete-event dynamic programming model with discounting, and with Borel state and action spaces. Instead of the usual n-stage contraction assumption (Denardo, E.

The book is a comprehensive and theoretically sound treatment of the mathematical foundations of stochastic optimal control of. The contractive dynamic programming model is introduced by Eric V. Denardo inwhich applies contraction theorem to a broad class of optimization problems.

It captures two widely shared properties of the optimization problem, contraction and monotonicity properties to develop a high level abstraction of optimization methods.

INTRODUCTION This article is concerned with a class of optimization problems, the formulation of which is based on an abstraction of the main properties of negative dynamic programs in Cited by: 5.

After formulating and motivating the abstract dynamic programming model in the first chapter, the second chapter considers the case where both the monotonicity and contraction assumptions hold. This is the situation corresponding to classic discounted dynamic programs, and the strongest results on the convergence of algorithms are available for Cited by: Downloadable.

New bounds are obtained on the optimal return function for what are called discounted sequential decision processes. Such processes are equivalent to ones satisfying the contraction and monotonicity properties (Denardo [Denardo, E.

Following this line of thought, the basic functional equations given below describing the quantitative aspects of the theory are uniformly obtained from the following intuitiveFile Size: 1MB. This book develops and presents the fundamental theory and algorithms for dynamic programming problems described as a solution of operator equations.

The underlying applications of this approach include problems with expected total costs and sequential minimax problems.5/5(2). Dynamic programming is a useful type of algorithm that can be used to optimize hard problems by breaking them up into smaller subproblems. By storing and re-using partial solutions, it manages to avoid the pitfalls of using a greedy algorithm.

There are two kinds of dynamic programming, bottom-up and top-down. Vol. 9, No. 2, Apr., Published by: Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Contraction Mappings in the Theory Underlying Dynamic Programming. Dynamic programming is both a mathematical optimization method and a computer programming method.

The method was developed by Richard Bellman in the s and has found applications in numerous fields, from aerospace engineering to economics. In both contexts it refers to simplifying a complicated problem by breaking it down into simpler sub-problems in a recursive.

A dynamic programming algorithm solves every sub problem just once and then Saves its answer in a table (array). Avoiding the work of re-computing the answer every time the sub problem is encountered.

The underlying idea of dynamic programming is: Avoid calculating the same stuff twice, usually by keeping a table of known results of sub problems. 11 Dynamic Programming Dynamic programming is a useful mathematical technique for making a sequence of in-terrelated decisions.

It provides a systematic procedure for determining the optimal com-bination of decisions.

This plays a key role in routing algorithms in networks where decisions are discrete (choosing a particular link for a route).
