Expected optimal feedback with Time-Varying Parameters

By Marco P. Tucci, David A. Kendrick and Hans M. Amman

Abstract

In this paper we derive the closed loop form of the Expected Optimal Feedback rule, sometimes called passive learning stochastic control, with time varying parameters. As such this paper extends the work of Kendrick (1981,2002, Chapter 6) where parameters are assumed to vary randomly around a known constant mean. Furthermore, we show that the cautionary myopic rule in Beck and Wieland (2002) model, a test bed for comparing various stochastic optimizations approaches, can be cast into this framework and can be treated as a special case of this solution.Optimal experimentation, stochastic optimization, time-varying parameters, expected optimal feedback
