Risk Aversion to Parameter Uncertainty in Markov Decision Processes with an Application to Slow-Onset Disaster Relief

In classical Markov Decision Processes (MDPs), action costs and transition probabilities are assumed to be known, although an accurate estimation of these parameters is often not possible in practice. This study addresses MDPs under cost and transition probability uncertainty and aims to provide a mathematical framework to obtain policies minimizing the risk of high long-term … Read more
