Dynamic Programming (Approximate, Differential), Model Predictive Control

  1. Aug 22, 2012 #1

    Could someone please explain in a short summary what the difference between the following are:

    1. Dynamic Programming from Control Engineering literature and Dynamic programming from Reinforcement learning literature?
    2. Approximate Dynamic Programming vs Differential Dynamic Programming vs Dynamic Programming itself?
    3. Dynamic Programming and Linear Quadratic Regulator?
    4. Linear Model Predictive Control and Nonlinear Model Predictive Contro? (Specifically, this technique requires full knowledge of the dynamics right? So what exactly does it predict n steps ahead?)

    I am very familiar with Linear Quadratic Regulator and Dynamic Programming coming from the Reinforcement Learning literature.

    Please let me know if you could help.

    Thank you very much
