Approximate Dynamic Programming Introduction Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP), also sometimes referred to as neuro-dynamic programming, attempts to overcome some of the limitations of value iteration.

The results provide insights into the successful performances appeared in the literature about the use of value-function approximators in DP. Value-function approximation is investigated for the solution via Dynamic Programming (DP) of continuous-state sequential N-stage decision problems, in which the reward to be maximized has an additive structure over a finite number of stages. , which are compact, convex, and have nonempty interiors too.
