Yunchang Yang, Tianhao Wu, Han Zhong, Evrard Garcelon, Matteo Pirotta, Alessandro Lazaric, Liwei Wang, Simon S. Du
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present a reduction-based framework for conservative bandits and RL, in which our core technique is to calculate the necessary and sufficient budget obtained from running the baseline  ...  We also obtain a new upper bound for conservative low-rank MDP.  ...  General Framework For Conservative Exploration With the unified view provided in the previous section, we can consider a generic sequential decisionmaking problem P over T ∈ N ⋆ episodes.  ...

Conservation equations governing hillslope responses: Exploring the physical basis of water balance

Paolo Reggiani, Murugesu Sivapalan, S. Majid Hassanizadeh
2000 Water Resources Research  
A unifying approach for the derivation of watershed-scale conservation equations governing hydrologic responses has recently been introduced.  ...  The conservation equations are supplemented by constitutive relationships needed for the closure of various mass and momentum exchange terms.  ...  Introduction Previously, Reggiani et al. [1998 , 1999a developed a mathematical framework for watershed thermodynamics with the idea that it could henceforth form the theoretical basis for watershed  ...

Remaking Tourism Carrying Capacity Frameworks for Geoparks

Wei Guo, Shanshan Chung
2017 DEStech Transactions on Social Science Education and Human Science  
Therefore we proposed a modified tourism carrying capacity concept for use in geoparks and remodeled 3 existing tourism carrying capacity frameworks for the sustainable tourism management in geoparks.  ...  However, no tailor-made management framework for geoparks is available so far. Six existing tourism carrying capacity (TCC) frameworks for national parks, i.e.  ...  The proposed framework is developed to address the changes being ushered by tourism in geoparks as a unified managerial strategic direction.  ...

Experiences in Managing Energy with ECOSystem

H. Zeng, C.S. Ellis, A.R. Lebeck
2005 IEEE pervasive computing  
First, we chose to explore energy management for general-purpose applications that weren't modified to be energy aware.  ...  It's based on the ideas that energy management should be a system-wide effort, that we should explicitly recognize energy as a resource, and that we should unify energy management across the system.  ...  We created the word currentcya combination of current and currency-to express a unified abstraction for the energy a system can spend on various devices, just like money is the unified abstraction of buying  ...
