"Finally, a book devoted to dynamic programming and writtenusing the language of operations research (OR)! This beautiful bookfills a gap in the libraries of OR specialists andpractitioners."âComputing Reviews
This new edition showcases a focus on modeling andcomputation for complex classes of approximate dynamic programmingproblems
Understanding approximate dynamic programming (ADP) is vital inorder to develop practical and high-quality solutions to complexindustrial problems, particularly when those problems involvemaking decisions in the presence of uncertainty. ApproximateDynamic Programming, Second Edition uniquely integrates fourdistinct disciplinesâMarkov decision processes, mathematicalprogramming, simulation, and statisticsâto demonstrate how tosuccessfully approach, model, and solve a wide range of real-lifeproblems using ADP.
The book continues to bridge the gap between computer science,simulation, and operations research and now adopts the notation andvocabulary of reinforcement learning as well as stochastic searchand simulation optimization. The author outlines the essentialalgorithms that serve as a starting point in the design ofpractical solutions for real problems. The three curses ofdimensionality that impact complex problems are introduced anddetailed coverage of implementation challenges is provided. TheSecond Edition also features:
A new chapter describing four fundamental classes of policiesfor working with diverse stochastic optimization problems: myopicpolicies, look-ahead policies, policy function approximations, andpolicies based on value function approximations
A new chapter on policy search that brings together stochasticsearch and simulation optimization concepts and introduces a newclass of optimal learning strategies
Updated coverage of the exploration exploitation problem in ADP,now including a recently developed method for doing active learningin the presence of a physical state, using the concept of theknowledge gradient
A new sequence of chapters describing statistical methods forapproximating value functions, estimating the value of a fixedpolicy, and value function approximation while searching foroptimal policies
The presented coverage of ADP emphasizes models and algorithms,focusing on related applications and computation while alsodiscussing the theoretical side of the topic that explores proofsof convergence and rate of convergence. A related website featuresan ongoing discussion of the evolving fields of approximationdynamic programming and reinforcement learning, along withadditional readings, software, and datasets.
Requiring only a basic understanding of statistics andprobability, Approximate Dynamic Programming, Second Editionis an excellent book for industrial engineering and operationsresearch courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. Italso serves as a valuable reference for researchers andprofessionals who utilize dynamic programming, stochasticprogramming, and control theory to solve problems in their everydaywork.
For courses in Java Programming.
A fundamentals-first introduction to basic programming concepts and techniques Â
Designed to support an introductory programming course,Â Introduction to Java Programming and Data Structures teaches you concepts of problem-solving and object-orientated programming using a fundamentals-first approach. Beginner programmers learn critical problem-solving techniques then move on to grasp the key concepts of object-oriented, GUI programming, data structures, and Web programming.Â This course approaches Java GUI programming using JavaFX, which has replaced Swing as the new GUI tool for developing cross-platform-rich Internet applications and is simpler to learn and use. TheÂ 11th editionÂ has been completely revised to enhance clarity and presentation, and includes new and expanded content, examples, and exercises.Â
Also available withÂ MyLabÂ Programming.
MyLabÂ Programming â¢ Â is an online learning system designed to engage students and improve results.Â MyLabÂ ProgrammingÂ consists of programming exercises correlated to the concepts and objectives in this book.

Package consists of:
Neuro-dynamic programming uses neural network approximations to overcome the "curse of dimensionality" and the "curse of modeling" that have been the bottlenecks to the practical application of dynamic programming and stochastic control to complex problems. The methodology allows systems to learn about their behavior through simulation, and to improve their performance through iterative reinforcement.
This book provides the first systematic presentation of the science and the art behind this exciting and far-reaching methodology.
The book develops a comprehensive analysis of neuro-dynamic programming algorithms, and guides the reader to their successful application through case studies from complex problem areas.
This is the 5th edition of Murach's classic Java book that's trained thousands of developers in the last 15 years. Now fully updated to Java 9, this book helps any programmer learn Java faster and better than ever before:
Advanced Apex Programming in Salesforce is neither a tutorial nor a book for beginners. Intended for developers who are already familiar with the Apex language, and experienced Java and C# developers who are moving to Apex, this book starts where the Salesforce Apex documentation leaves off.
Instead of trying to cover all of the features of the platform, Advanced Apex programming focuses entirely on the Apex language and core design patterns. Youâll learn how to truly think in Apex â to embrace limits and bulk patterns. Youâll see how to develop architectures for efficient and reliable trigger handling, and for asynchronous operations. Youâll discover that best practices differ radically depending on whether you are building software for a specific organization or for a managed package. And youâll find approaches for incorporating testing and diagnostic code that can dramatically improve the reliability and deployment of Apex software, and reduce your lifecycle and support costs.
Based on his experience as a consultant, Salesforce MVP and architect of major AppExchange packages, Dan Appleman focuses on the real-world problems and issues that are faced by Apex developers every day, along with the obscure problems and surprises that can sneak up on you if you are unprepared.
This fourth edition contains updates through Summer 18 (API 43) along with significant new content including Salesforce DX
