"Covers design methods for optimal (or quasioptimal) control algorithms in the form of synthesis for deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems-with applications in aerospace, robotic, and servomechanical technologies. Providing new results on exact and approximate solutions of optimal control problems."
"…interesting to readers seeking insight into dynamic stochastic optimization problems."
---International Statistical Institute
"This book with emphasis is analytical methods for approximate solutions to Bellman's equation can be recommended to applied scientists who want to use dynamic programming method in a constructive way. "
