  1. 1. Reinforcement learning for admission control and routing

    Author : Jakob Carlström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; routing; admission control; reinforcement learning; Markov decision processes; temporal-difference learning; policy iteration; gain scheduling; neural networks; self-similarity; asynchronous transfer mode; max-min fairness; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Computer Systems; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : When a user requests. a connection to another user or a computer in a communications network, a routing algorithm selects a path for transferring the resulting data stream. If all suitable paths are busy, the user request cannot beserved, and is blocked. READ MORE

  2. 2. National Energy System Modelling for Supporting Energy and Climate Policy Decision-making: The Case of Sweden

    Author : Anna Cecilia Krook Riekkola; Anna Krook-Riekkola; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; climate policy; district heating; TIMES-Sweden; ancillary benefits; energy system models; cross-border trade; energy-economics; soft-linking.; CHP; system analysis; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Energy system models can contribute in evaluating impacts of energy and climate policies. The process of working with energy system models assists the understanding of the quantita-tive relationships between different parts of the energy system and between different time periods, under various assumptions.

  3. 3. Essays on Empirical Macroeconomics

    Author : Dario Caldara; John Hassler; Giancarlo Corsetti; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Fiscal Policy; Identification; Vector Autoregression; Recursive Preferences; Perturbation; DSGE Models; Business Cycle Accounting; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four essays in empirical macroeconomics. What Are the Effects of Fiscal Policy Shocks? A VAR-Based Comparative Analysis The literature using structural vector autoregressions (SVARs) to assess the effects of fiscal policy shocks strongly disagrees on the qualitative and quantitative response of key macroeconomic variables.

  4. 4. Approximate Dynamic Programming with Applications

    Author : Andreas Wernrud; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []

    Abstract : This thesis studies approximate optimal control of nonlinear systems. Particular attention is given to global solutions and to the computation of approximately optimal feedback controllers. The solution to an optimal control problem is characterized by the optimal value function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structure exploiting optimization methods for model predictive control

    Author : Emil Klintberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multi-stage robust MPC; Optimization methods.; Model Predictive Control; Distributed optimization;

    Abstract : This thesis considers optimization methods for Model Predictive Control (MPC). MPC is the preferred control technique in a growing set of applications due to its flexibility and to the natural way in which constraints can be incorporated in the control policy. READ MORE
