Insect pest control, approximate dynamic programming, and the management of the evolution of resistance

Abstract:

Ecological decision problems, such as those encountered in agriculture, often require managing conflicts between short‐term costs and long‐term benefits. Dynamic programming is an ideal method for optimally solving such problems but agricultural problems are often subject to additional complexities that produce state spaces intractable to exact solutions. In contrast, look‐ahead policies, a class of approximate dynamic programming (ADP) algorithm, may attempt to solve problems of arbitrary ma...
