In section 7 the algorithm will be used in order to solve a wireless optimization problem that will be deﬁned in section 3. endobj Unlike the single controller case considered in many other books, the author considers a single controller with several objectives, such as minimizing delays and loss, probabilities, and maximization of throughputs. The action space is defined by the electricity network constraints. Safe Reinforcement Learning in Constrained Markov Decision Processes control (Mayne et al.,2000) has been popular.
