Abstract
Computing a numerical solution to a periodic optimal control problem is difficult. A method of approximating a solution to a given (stochastic) optimal control problem using Markov chains was developed in [3]. This paper describes an attempt at applying this method to a periodic optimal control problem introduced in [2].
