Markov Decision Process (MDP) Toolbox 4.0 for Python
.. image::
The MDP toolbox provides classes and functions for the resolution of
descrete-time Markov Decision Processes. The list of algorithms that have been
implemented includes backwards induction, linear programming, policy iteration,
q-learning and value iteration along with several variations.
The classes and functions were developped based on the
