In such framework, decisions must be adapted dynamically to account for possible regime changes of the underlying dynamics. Using stochastic filtering theory, Markovian evolution can be modelled in terms of latent variables, which naturally leads to high-dimensional state space, making practical solutions to these control problems notoriously challenging. In our approach, we utilise a specific structure of this problem class to present a solution in terms of simple, reliable, and fast algorithms. The algorithms presented in this paper have already been implemented in an R package.
