    In this paper we investigate average reward semi-Markov decision processes with a general multichain structure using a data-transformation method. By solving the transformed discrete-time average Markov decision processes, we can obtain significant and interesting information on the original...

    Doubly hidden Markov models (DHMMs) have been widely used to analyze a type of time process whose driving factors are hierarchical and hierarchically correlated. A common issue of these models is that they implicitly assume that the dwell time of any system state is constant or exponentially...

    In this paper semi-Markov reward models are presented. Higher moments of the reward process is presented for the first time applied to in time non-homogeneous semi-Markov insurance problems. Also an example is presented based on real disability data. Different algorithmic approaches to solve the...
