Abstract
Computing the solution to a stochastic optimal control problem is difficult. A method of approximating a solution to a given stochastic optimal control problem using Markov chains was developed in [Kra01]. This paper describes a suite of MATLAB functions implementing this method of approximating a solution to a given continuous stochastic optimal control problem.
