Stability and Convergence of Stochastic Approximation Algorithms by the O.D.E. Method
This talk will describe recent work (joint, with Sean Meyn) on establishing the stability and convergence of a class of stochastic approximation algorithms by analyzing the O.D.E. limits obtained after suitable rescaling. Applications to some algorithms arising in neurodynamic programming will also be described.
