Stochastic Dynamic Programming – Review – DP with probabilities 1 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

Overview Objective: illustrate the use of DP with probabilities l Seems more complex because it is a more complex decision at each stage l But the optimal decision at each stage still depends on the previous stages. l 2 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

Review of DP using stages Capital Budgeting, again Investment budget = $14, 000 3 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

The Dynamic programming stages and states Stages: at stage k consider only stocks 1, 2, …, k State: B is the budget Let f(k, B) be the best NPV limited to stocks 1, 2, …, k only and using a budget of at most B. Compute f(1, B) for B = 0 to 14. Then compute f(2, B) for B = 0 to 14. Then compute f(3, B) for B = 0 to 14. etc. MIT and James Orlin © 2003 4

In general, f(k, B) can be computed from f(k-1, · ) 8 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

Decision Diagrams $28 <3, 9> $12 <2, 5> $16 Buy stock 3 Don’t buy stock 3 <2, 9> $22 The above diagram is a decision diagram. The optimal decision at each stage can be determined from decisions at previous stages. We may view the diagram as a “local decision diagram” since it involves only a small part of the overall decision. We use an extension of this approach when we deal with dynamic programming under uncertainty. MIT and James Orlin © 2003 9

Dynamic Programming under uncertainty l Next: we will permit uncertainties in our DPs. l This is usually where DP gets much more powerful as a tool, but also more complex l We illustrate with an example in warfare, or gaming if you prefer. 10 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

Destroying an enemy target: a bomber example l You are a pilot in enemy territory. Your mission is to destroy an important target. You must get through. You have four minutes to reach your target, and have just been spotted by radar. l Enemies have can launch up to one bomber per minute to prevent you from reaching the target. The probability of them launching a bomber in any minute is qi for i = 1 to 4. 11 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

A bomber example, continued l To protect yourself, you have M missiles. Each has a probability of pj of destroying the bomber. l Whenever you see a bomber, you must decide how many missiles to launch. If you do not destroy the bomber, then you will be destroyed. l Determine a strategy for how many missiles to launch at each time, assuming you see a bomber attacking you. – Let f(k, m) be the number of missiles to launch assuming that you have k minutes left and have m missiles on hand. – A strategy is to determine f(k, m) for k = 1 to 4 and m = 1 to M. 12 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

Simulating the bomber example l Each person has a die and a page describing the probabilities. l Simulate 1 or more instances of the game. – We will discuss the results – Then we will show to determine an optimal strategy using DP 13 MIT and James Orlin © 2003

What is the probability of surviving with 1 minutes remaining and 4 missiles left There is one minute left. You have 4 missiles remaining. The probability of a launched bomber is 2/3. The probability of a missile hitting the bomber is 1/3. If a bomber is launched, how many missiles do you fire. What is the probability of survival? Step 1. Draw the diagram. You win! no 1 minutes left, 4 missiles 1 missile <1, 4> 2 missiles yes bomber launched? Fire 3 missiles 4 missiles Firing all missiles is clearly optimal with one minute to go.

Step 3. Compute values at each node. The probability of a launched bomber is 2/3. The probability of a missile hitting the bomber is 1/3. Compute values at each node, moving from right to left.

Some comments on DP l Seems complex, but the computations are all very similar. – easy to program (not so easy in Excel) – very efficient Useful in finance – investments over time – the outcome of an investment is uncertain l Useful in inventory control – demands are uncertain – supplies must be ordered in advance l 23 MIT and James Orlin © 2003
