Sample-Based Information-Theoretic Stochastic Optimal Control

Abstract—Many Stochastic Optimal Control (SOC) ap- proaches rely on samples to either obtain an estimate of the value function or a linearisation of the underlying system model. However, these approaches typically neglect the fact that the accuracy of the policy update depends on the closeness of the resulting trajectory ...
