dc.description.abstract | Some sequential sampling problems where there in one unknown parameter in a generating stochastic process are considered by Bayesian concepts with the aid of Dynamic Programming equations. Some properties of the boundaries between the sets of points in the observation sample space corrosponding to each terminal decision and the continuation decision are found. The economics of the problems are considered by using the Bayesian idea of a prior distribution with accompanying utilities for the possible decisions and a cost of sampling. Problems whose sample space consist of an enumerable number of points are considered first. The last part considers some problems with a non-enumerable sample space and the properties of the boundaries are much more difficult to obtain. | en |
