Fixing Financial Crises in the 21st Century

Monetary crises have dogged the foreign financial procedure over fresh years. they've got impoverished hundreds of thousands of individuals all over the world, in particular inside of constructing international locations. and so they have referred to as into query the very means of globalization. but there continues to be no highbrow consensus on how most sensible to dodge such crises, less unravel them.

LNCS (LNAI), vol. 3720, pp. 412–424. de Abstract. We present a distributed Q-Learning approach for independently learning agents in a subclass of cooperative stochastic games called cooperative sequential stage games. In this subclass, several stage games are played one after the other. We also propose a transformation function for that class and prove that transformed and original games have the same set of optimal joint strategies. Under the condition that the played game is obtained through transformation, it will be proven that our approach converges to an optimal joint strategy for the last stage game of the transformed game and thus also for the original game.

S1 is described by the {x1,1 , x˙ 1,1 } variables, representing the position and the velocity of the mass M1,1 . S2 = {x1,2 , x˙ 1,2 , x2,2 , x˙ 2,2 }, representing the position and the velocity of M1,2 and M2,2 . A reward of +1 is given to the agent of system one if the position of the mass M1,1 is 1 and −1 otherwise. On the other hand, a reward of +10 is given to the agent of system two if the position and the velocity of the mass M1,2 is 1 and 0 respectively, and otherwise a reward of −10 is given.

We term the subclass of cooperative stochastic games considered in this work (cooperative) sequential stage games (SSG). This class contains those games that are composed of static games which are played repeatedly and consecutively by the same agents. Sequential stage games offer some interesting properties for application, in particular for large problems where agents are unable to observe all other agents and cannot access the global state of the system due to its size. Possible applications of this class include for instance economic problems, distributed control of production processes, distributed web-services, coordination in large distributed robotic systems, or multi-objective optimization problems.
