(b) About Assumption 3.1(ii). The first integral is finite by the Cauchy–Schwarz inequality and the finiteness of $$\int_{\|\omega\|\leq1} |{\hat{f}}({\omega})|^{2} \,d\omega$$.

(ii) Follows by [40, Theorem 2.1] and the Rellich–Kondrachov theorem [56, Theorem 6.3, p. 168], which allows to use “sup” in (20) instead of “$$\operatorname{ess\,sup}$$”. (i) is proved likewise Proposition 3.1 by replacing $$J_{t+1}^{o}$$ with $$\tilde{J}_{t+1}^{o}$$ and $$g_{t}^{o}$$ with $$\tilde{g}_{t}^{o}$$. For each state s, we deﬁne a row-vector ˚(s) of features. These Bell-man equations are very important for dynamic programming … Set $$\tilde{J}^{o}_{N-1}=f_{N-1}$$ in (22). }]. Then, by differentiating $$T_{t} \tilde{J}_{t+1,j}^{o}$$ up to the order m, we get, Finally, the statement follows by the continuity of the embedding of $$\mathcal{C}^{m}(X_{t})$$ into $$\mathcal{W}^{m}_{p}(\operatorname{int} (X_{t}))$$ (since X ν(ℝd). where, by Proposition 3.2(i), $$\hat {J}^{o,2}_{N-2} \in\mathcal{W}^{2 + (2s+1)(N-1)}_{2}(\mathbb{R}^{d})$$ is a suitable extension of $$T_{N-2} \tilde{J}^{o}_{N-1}$$ on ℝd, and $$\bar {C}_{N-2}>0$$ does not depend on the approximations generated in the previous iterations. VFAs approximate the cost-to-go of the optimality equation. Value function approximations have to capture the right structure. In such a case, we get, Let η The value function of a given policy satisﬁes the (linear) Bellman evaluation equation and the optimal value function (which is linked to one of the optimal policies) satisﬁes the (nonlinear) Bellman optimality equation. As $$J_{t}^{o}$$ is unknown, in the worst case it happens that one chooses $$\tilde{J}_{t}^{o}=\tilde{f}_{t}$$ instead of $$\tilde{J}_{t}^{o}=f_{t}$$. In order to address the fifth issue, function approximation methods are used. By the triangle inequality and Proposition 2.1. Learn. 2, we conclude that, for every $$f \in B_{\rho}(\|\cdot\|_{\mathcal{W}^{q + 2s+1}_{2}})$$ and every positive integer n, there exists $$f_{n} \in\mathcal{R}(\psi,n)$$ such that $$\max_{0\leq|\mathbf{r}|\leq q} \sup_{x \in X} \vert D^{\mathbf{r}} f(x) - D^{\mathbf{r}} f_{n}(x) \vert \leq C \frac{\rho}{\sqrt{n}}$$.
