Abstract: This paper presents a formulation of an optimality principle for a new class of concurrent decision systems formed by products of deterministic Markov decision processes (MDPs). For a single MDP, the optimality principle reduces to the usual Bellman's equation. The formulation is significant because it provides a basis for the development of optimisation algorithms for decentralised decision systems including a recently proposed method based on Petri Net unfoldings. © 2008 Springer Berlin Heidelberg.
