Simple Strategies in Multi-Objective MDPs (Technical Report)

10/24/2019 ∙ by Florent Delgrange, et al. ∙ 0

We consider the verification of multiple expected reward objectives at once on Markov decision processes (MDPs). This enables a trade-off analysis among multiple objectives by obtaining the Pareto front. We focus on strategies that are easy to employ and implement. That is, strategies that are pure (no randomization) and have bounded memory. We show that checking whether a point is achievable by a pure stationary strategy is NP-complete, even for two objectives, and we provide an MILP encoding to solve the corresponding problem. The bounded memory case can be reduced to the stationary one by a product construction. Experimental results using and Gurobi show the feasibility of our algorithms.
