Perturbation analysis (PA) is the core of the gradient-based (or policy gradient) learning and optimization approach. The basic principle of PA is that the derivative of a system’s performance with respect to a parameter of the system can be decomposed into the sum of many small building blocks, each of which measures the effect of a single perturbation on the.

Gupta, Member, IEEE Abstract—The role of gradient estimation in global opti-mization is investigated. The concept of a regional gradient is introduced as a tool for analyzing and comparing different types of gradient estimates.
The field of perturbation analysis for gradient estimation includes numerous other extensions and variations on IPA not discussed here, including rare perturbation analysis (Brémaud and Vázquez-Abad, ); structural IPA (Dai and Ho, ); discontinuous perturbation analysis ; and augmented IPA (Gaivoronski et al., ).Cited by: In the case here, direct gradient estimation techniques (such as perturbation analysis and likelihood ratio methods) whenever applicable, are shown Author: Sujin Kim.

Hong () [Hong LJ () Estimating quantile sensitivities. Oper. Res. 57(1)] introduced a general framework based on probability sensitivities and a conditional expectation relationship for estimating quantile sensitivities by infinitesimal perturbation analysis (IPA).
We present an alternative more direct derivation of the IPA estimators that leads to simplified Cited by: 9.
The primary application is gradient estimation during the simulation of discrete-event systems, for example, queueing and inventory systems. Besides their importance in sensitivity analysis, these gradient estimators are a critical component in gradient-based simulation optimization methods.

Conditional Monte Carlo: Gradient Estimation and Optimization Applications. [Michael Fu; Jianqiang Hu] -- Conditional Monte Carlo: Gradient Estimation and Optimization Applications deals with various gradient estimation techniques of perturbation analysis based on the use of conditional expectation.
The. We study the links between the likelihood-ratio (LR) gradient-estimation technique (sometimes called the score-function (SF) method), and infinitesimal perturbation analysis (IPA).
We show how IPA can be viewed as a (degenerate) special case of the LR and SF techniques by selecting an appropriate representation of the underlying sample space Cited by: Convergence (with probability one) of a stochastic optimization algorithm for a single server queue is proved.
The parameter to be optimized is updated using an infinitesimal perturbation analysis estimate of the gradient of the performance measure, and the updates are performed at general times.
First, an algorithm in which the parameter is updated before each customer begins Cited by: Next article in issue: Gradient estimation via perturbation analysis, by Paul Glasserman, Kluwer, Boston.

Dwaracherla, Neeraja Sahasrabudhe Abstract We propose a scheme for nding a \good" estimator for the gradient of a function on a high-dimensional space with few function evaluations.
Often such functions are not sensitive. In this survey paper, we provide an overview on various simulation methods for Lévy processes. In addition, we introduce two simulation based sensitivity estimation methods: perturbation analysis and the likelihood ratio method.
Sensitivity estimation is useful in various applications, such as derivative pricing and parameter : Rachel Chen, Jianqiang Hu, Yijie Peng. Over the last two decades, various perturbation analysis techniques have been developed to handle a large class of problems.

Gradient-based optimization using the new approach for estimating the derivatives is applied to example problems from the literature. The solutions are superior to all previously published solutions and are obtained with very reasonable computer run times.

Ho and X. Cao, Perturbation Analysis of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston, ,Ordinal Optimization. Perturbation theory comprises mathematical methods for finding an approximate solution to a problem, by starting from the exact solution of a related, simpler problem.
A critical feature of the technique is a middle step that breaks the problem into "solvable" and "perturbation" parts. Perturbation theory is applicable if the problem at hand cannot be solved exactly, but can be.
Perturbation Analysis of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems Yu-Chi Ho, Xi-Ren Cao (auth.) Dynamic Systems (DEDS) are almost endless: military C31 Ilogistic systems, the emergency ward of a metropolitan hospital, back offices of large insurance and brokerage fums, service and spare part operations of multinational fums the point is the.
Perturbation Analysis (PA) and other single run gradient estimation techniques, on the other hand, takes the viewpoint that a single sample path or experiment on a DEDS contains inherently much more information about the system than conventional simulations utilize in their output analysis.
Two approaches of gradient analysis are reviewed: direct and indirect gradient analyses. The most popular hypotheses in gradient analysis are also discussed. Contemporary state of gra-dient analysis theory is presented and illustrated.
