Chow's method of optimal control

Michael Reiter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The note investigates the numerical properties of the method proposed by Chow (1993) to solve stochastic dynamic optimization problems. The results are compared to the standard method of linear quadratic approximation. The properties of these approximation schemes under heteroskedastic noise are examined.
