Gradient Estimation for Regenerative Processes
STANFORD UNIV CA DEPT OF OPERATIONS RESEARCH
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper is concerned with gradient estimation techniques for steady-state performance measures associated with regenerative stochastic processes. The principal emphasis is on the discussion of conditions under which likelihood ratio methods and infinitesimal perturbation analysis techniques are valid....
