Overview

Thathachar and Sastry (both electrical engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) consider the synthesis of complex learning structures from simple building blocks. The building block in this case is the single learning automaton which learns to select the best action by repeated interactions with an unknown random environment, which the authors use to create systems consisting of several learning automata, such as games and feedforward networks. Mathematical analysis of their behavior is provided, along with discussion of the construction of learning automata solutions in a variety of applications. Suitable as a text in graduate level courses and as a reference work for researchers. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
