Risk-Based Operation and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Turbines [chapter]

Jannie Sønderkær Nielsen
2013 Risk-Based Operation and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Turbines  
Maes and Naess (2012) concerns the general problem of selecting an optimal window of opportunity within a finite horizon, and investigates different strategies to choose the right window of opportunity.  ...  Then, the optimal policy can be found for a given belief state. (Jensen & Nielsen 2007) For unbounded time horizons, the strategies are stationary.  ...

Computer science and decision theory

Fred S. Roberts
2008 Annals of Operations Research  
In game theory, values, optimal strategies, equilibria, and other solution concepts can be easy, hard, or even impossible to compute.  ...  This paper reviews applications in computer science that decision theorists have addressed for years, discusses the requirements posed by these applications that place great strain on decision theory/social  ...  Because the state space itself may be infinite, classical dynamic programming algorithms for decision making do not apply directly.  ...

Sara V. Rodríguez, Tina Birk Jensen, Lluis M. Plà, Anders Ringgaard Kristensen
2011 Livestock Science  
Bayesian 33 networks are used to develop the WSI models for lactating and pregnant sows, 34 respectively.  ...  This 27 paper presents a framework for integrating a Weak Sow Index (WSI) into an existing 28 sow replacement model.  ...  The full model is defined as follows: 286Founder process: Infinite time horizon. 288 Stage: Stage length is equal to the life span of a sow in the herd. 289 State space: Only one dummy state is defined  ...
