Optimization of real-time coding and control policies: Structural and existence results

Serdar Yüksel, Tamer Başar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter establishes the structure of optimal quantization policies under various information structures for general cost functions. The coverage includes both single decision maker and multiple decision maker formulations, with partial as well as full observation. A dynamic programming approach is presented building on classical results by Witsenhausen, and Walrand and Varaiya. Existence results are established for optimal encoding policies. The chapter also presents optimal solutions for encoders and controllers under quadratic performance measure for linear Gaussian systems controlled over discrete noiseless channels.
