V(n) =·ν* + 0(β ) to obtain Insert S(n,e ) = {A ε S | v* - qA - βΡΑ v* <_ ε 1_ + 0(βη)} . Since ε ^+0(β η ) approaches zero, 0<ε η 1 + 0(βη) < εο for all sufficiently large. Therefore S(n^)^"S* for all n sufficiently large. We finally turn to the issue of determining initially stationary optimal strategies. We observe before that an optimal strategy must lie in X^=-. S(n) . Shapiro's example (cf. [45] ) shows that in general there may be no (optimal) policy which is contained within all of the sets S(n) for all n large enough.

Conditions determining the existence of lim * [v(n) - ng ] are of importance for at least the following reasons: 1. If v(0) is such that lim ^ Γ ν ( η ) - ng*] exists, then v(n) - v(n - 1) converges to g , and nv(n - l)-(n - l)v(n) converges to a solution v e V . 6) can be computed. Both limits are approach­ However, if ed geometrically (see below). {v(n) - ng }n=i does not converge, then g* cannot be estimated from [v(n) - v ( n - l ) ] . It is still possible to estimate g from v(n)/n; however, the rate of convergence is now only of the order 0(n~ ) , whereas no estimates seem to be available for V E V .
