New algorithms for solving stochastic games

11 Dec 2019  ·  Oliu-Barton Miquel ·

Stochastic games are a classical model in game theory in which two opponents interact and the environment changes in response to the players' behavior. The central solution concepts for these games are the discounted values and the value, which represent what playing the game is worth to the players for different levels of impatience... In the present manuscript, we provide algorithms for computing exact expressions for the discounted values and for the value, which are polynomial in the number of pure stationary strategies of the players. This result considerably improves all the existing algorithms, including the most efficient one, due to Hansen, Kouck\'y, Lauritzen, Miltersen and Tsigaridas (STOC 2011). read more
