## Description¶

According to the Reinforcement Learning problem settings, Q-Learning is a kind of **Temporal Difference learning(TD Learning)** that can be considered as hybrid of **Monte Carlo** method and **Dynamic Programming** method. As Monte Carlo method, TD Learning algorithm can learn by experience without model of environment. And this learning algorithm is functional extension of bootstrap method as Dynamic Programming Method.

In this library, Q-Learning can be distinguished into **Epsilon Greedy Q-Leanring** and **Boltzmann Q-Learning**. These algorithm is
functionally equivalent but their structures should be conceptually distinguished.

Epsilon Greedy Q-Leanring algorithm is a typical off-policy algorithm. In this paradigm, *stochastic* searching and *deterministic* searching can coexist by hyperparameter that is probability that agent searches greedy. Greedy searching is *deterministic* in the sense that policy of agent follows the selection that maximizes the Q-Value.

Boltzmann Q-Learning algorithm is based on Boltzmann action selection mechanism, where the probability of selecting the action is given by

where the temperature controls exploration/exploitation tradeoff. For the agent always acts greedily and chooses the strategy corresponding to the maximum Q–value, so as to be pure *deterministic* exploitation, whereas for the agent’s strategy is completely random, so as to be pure *stochastic* exploration.

Considering many variable parts and functional extensions in the Q-learning paradigm from perspective of *commonality/variability analysis* in order to practice object-oriented design, this library provides abstract class that defines the skeleton of a Q-Learning algorithm in an operation, deferring some steps in concrete variant algorithms such as Epsilon Greedy Q-Leanring and Boltzmann Q-Learning to client subclasses. The abstract class in this library lets subclasses redefine certain steps of a Q-Learning algorithm without changing the algorithm’s structure.

## Tutorial: Simple Maze Solving by Q-Learning (Jupyter notebook)¶

search_maze_by_q_learning.ipynb is a Jupyter notebook which demonstrates a simple maze solving algorithm based on Epsilon-Greedy Q-Learning or Q-Learning, loosely coupled with Deep Boltzmann Machine(DBM).

In this demonstration, let me cite the Q-Learning, *loosely coupled with Deep Boltzmann Machine* (DBM). As API Documentation of pydbm library has pointed out, DBM is functionally equivalent to stacked auto-encoder. The main function I observe is the same as dimensions reduction(or pre-training). Then the function of this DBM is dimensionality reduction of reward value matrix.

Q-Learning, loosely coupled with Deep Boltzmann Machine (DBM), is a more effective way to solve maze. The pre-training by DBM allow Q-Learning agent to abstract feature of reward value matrix and to observe the map in a bird’s-eye view. Then agent can reach the goal with a smaller number of trials.

As shown in the below image, the state-action value function and parameters setting can be designed to correspond with the optimality of route.

## Tutorial: Complexity of Hyperparameters, or how can be hyperparameters decided?¶

There are many hyperparameters that we have to set before the actual searching and learning process begins. Each parameter should be decided in relation to Reinforcement Learning theory and it cause side effects in training model. Because of this complexity of hyperparameters, so-called the hyperparameter tuning must become a burden of Data scientists and R & D engineers from the perspective of not only a theoretical point of view but also implementation level.

### Combinatorial optimization problem and Simulated Annealing.¶

This issue can be considered as **Combinatorial optimization problem** which is an optimization problem, where an optimal solution has to be identified from a finite set of solutions. The solutions are normally discrete or can be converted into discrete. This is an important topic studied in operations research such as software engineering, artificial intelligence(AI), and machine learning. For instance, travelling sales man problem is one of the popular combinatorial optimization problem.

In this problem setting, this library provides an Annealing Model to search optimal combination of hyperparameters. For instance, **Simulated Annealing** is a probabilistic single solution based search method inspired by the annealing process in metallurgy. Annealing is a physical process referred to as tempering certain alloys of metal, glass, or crystal by heating above its melting point, holding its temperature, and then cooling it very slowly until it solidifies into a perfect crystalline structure. The simulation of this process is known as simulated annealing.

### Functional comparison.¶

annealing_hand_written_digits.ipynb is a Jupyter notebook which demonstrates a very simple classification problem: Recognizing hand-written digits, in which the aim is to assign each input vector to one of a finite number of discrete categories, to learn observed data points from already labeled data how to predict the class of unlabeled data. In the usecase of hand-written digits dataset, the task is to predict, given an image, which digit it represents.

There are many structural extensions and functional equivalents of **Simulated Annealing**. For instance, **Adaptive Simulated Annealing**, also known as the very fast simulated reannealing, is a very efficient version of simulated annealing. And **Quantum Monte Carlo**, which is generally known a stochastic method to solve the Schrödinger equation, is one of the earliest types of solution in order to simulate the **Quantum Annealing** in classical computer. In summary, one of the function of this algorithm is to solve the ground state search problem which is known as logically equivalent to combinatorial optimization problem. Then this Jupyter notebook demonstrates functional comparison in the same problem setting.

## Demonstration: Epsilon Greedy Q-Learning and Simulated Annealing.¶

Import python modules.

```
from pyqlearning.annealingmodel.costfunctionable.greedy_q_learning_cost import GreedyQLearningCost
from pyqlearning.annealingmodel.simulated_annealing import SimulatedAnnealing
from devsample.maze_greedy_q_learning import MazeGreedyQLearning
```

The class `GreedyQLearningCost`

is implemented the interface `CostFunctionable`

to be called by `AnnealingModel`

. This cost function is defined by

where is the number of searching(learning) and L is a limit of .

Like Monte Carlo method, let us draw random samples from a normal (Gaussian) or unifrom distribution.

```
# Epsilon-Greedy rate in Epsilon-Greedy-Q-Learning.
greedy_rate_arr = np.random.normal(loc=0.5, scale=0.1, size=100)
# Alpha value in Q-Learning.
alpha_value_arr = np.random.normal(loc=0.5, scale=0.1, size=100)
# Gamma value in Q-Learning.
gamma_value_arr = np.random.normal(loc=0.5, scale=0.1, size=100)
# Limit of the number of Learning(searching).
limit_arr = np.random.normal(loc=10, scale=1, size=100)
var_arr = np.c_[greedy_rate_arr, alpha_value_arr, gamma_value_arr, limit_arr]
```

Instantiate and initialize `MazeGreedyQLearning`

which is-a `GreedyQLearning`

.

```
# Instantiation.
greedy_q_learning = MazeGreedyQLearning()
greedy_q_learning.initialize(hoge=fuga)
```

Instantiate `GreedyQLearningCost`

which is implemented the interface `CostFunctionable`

to be called by `AnnealingModel`

.

```
init_state_key = ("Some", "data")
cost_functionable = GreedyQLearningCost(
greedy_q_learning,
init_state_key=init_state_key
)
```

Instantiate `SimulatedAnnealing`

which is-a `AnnealingModel`

.

```
annealing_model = SimulatedAnnealing(
# is-a `CostFunctionable`.
cost_functionable=cost_functionable,
# The number of annealing cycles.
cycles_num=5,
# The number of trials of searching per a cycle.
trials_per_cycle=3
)
```

Fit the `var_arr`

to `annealing_model`

.

```
annealing_model.var_arr = var_arr
```

Start annealing.

```
annealing_model.annealing()
```

To extract result of searching, call the property `predicted_log_list`

which is list of tuple: `(Cost, Delta energy, Mean of delta energy, probability in Boltzmann distribution, accept flag)`

. And refer the property `x`

which is `np.ndarray`

that has combination of hyperparameters. The optimal combination can be extracted as follow.

```
# Extract list: [(Cost, Delta energy, Mean of delta energy, probability, accept)]
predicted_log_arr = annealing_model.predicted_log_arr
# [greedy rate, Alpha value, Gamma value, Limit of the number of searching.]
min_e_v_arr = annealing_model.var_arr[np.argmin(predicted_log_arr[:, 2])]
```

### Contingency of definitions¶

The above definition of cost function is possible option: not necessity but contingent from the point of view of modal logic. You should questions the necessity of definition and re-define, for designing the implementation of interface `CostFunctionable`

, in relation to *your* problem settings.

## Demonstration: Epsilon Greedy Q-Learning and Adaptive Simulated Annealing.¶

There are various Simulated Annealing such as Boltzmann Annealing, Adaptive Simulated Annealing(SAS), and Quantum Simulated Annealing. On the premise of Combinatorial optimization problem, these annealing methods can be considered as functionally equivalent. The *Commonality/Variability* in these methods are able to keep responsibility of objects all straight as the class diagram below indicates.

### Code sample.¶

`AdaptiveSimulatedAnnealing`

is-a subclass of `SimulatedAnnealing`

. The *variability* is aggregated in the method `AdaptiveSimulatedAnnealing.adaptive_set()`

which must be called before executing `AdaptiveSimulatedAnnealing.annealing()`

.

```
from pyqlearning.annealingmodel.simulatedannealing.adaptive_simulated_annealing import AdaptiveSimulatedAnnealing
annealing_model = AdaptiveSimulatedAnnealing(
cost_functionable=cost_functionable,
cycles_num=33,
trials_per_cycle=3,
accepted_sol_num=0.0,
init_prob=0.7,
final_prob=0.001,

# The minimum temperature.
t_min=0.001,
# The default temperature.
t_default=1.0
)
annealing_model.var_arr = params_arr
annealing_model.annealing()
```

## Demonstration: Epsilon Greedy Q-Learning and Quantum Monte Carlo.¶

Generally, Quantum Monte Carlo is a stochastic method to solve the Schrödinger equation. This algorithm is one of the earliest types of solution in order to simulate the Quantum Annealing in classical computer. In summary, one of the function of this algorithm is to solve the ground state search problem which is known as logically equivalent to combinatorial optimization problem.

According to theory of spin glasses, the ground state search problem can be described as minimization energy determined by the hamiltonian as follow

where refers to the Pauli spin matrix below for the spin-half particle at lattice point . In spin glasses, random value is assigned to . The number of combinations is enormous. If this value is , a trial frequency is . This computation complexity makes it impossible to solve the ground state search problem. Then, in theory of spin glasses, the standard hamiltonian is re-described in expanded form.

where also refers to the Pauli spin matrix and is so-called annealing coefficient, which is hyperparameter that contains vely high value. Ising model to follow this Hamiltonian is known as the Transverse Ising model.

In relation to this system, thermal equilibrium amount of a physical quantity is as follow.

If is a diagonal matrix, then also is diagonal matrix. If diagonal element in is , Each diagonal element is . However if has off-diagonal elements, It is known that since for any of the exponent we must exponentiate the matrix as follow.

Therefore, a path integration based on Trotter-Suzuki decomposition has been introduced in Quantum Monte Carlo Method. This path integration makes it possible to obtain the partition function .

where if is large enough, relational expression below is established.

Then the partition function can be re-descibed as follow.

where is topological products (product spaces). Because is the diagonal matrix, .

Therefore,

The partition function can be re-descibed as follow.

where is the number of trotter.

This relational expression indicates that the quantum - mechanical Hamiltonian in dimentional Tranverse Ising model is functional equivalence to classical Hamiltonian in dimentional Ising model, which means that the state of the quantum - mechanical system can be approximate by the state of classical system.

### Code sample.¶

from pyqlearning.annealingmodel.quantum_monte_carlo import QuantumMonteCarlo
from pyqlearning.annealingmodel.distancecomputable.cost_as_distance import CostAsDistance
# User defined function which is-a `CostFuntionable`.
cost_functionable = YourCostFunctions()
# Compute cost as distance for `QuantumMonteCarlo`.
distance_computable = CostAsDistance(params_arr, cost_functionable)
# Init.
annealing_model = QuantumMonteCarlo(
distance_computable=distance_computable,
# The number of annealing cycles.
cycles_num=100,
# Inverse temperature (Beta).
inverse_temperature_beta=0.1,
# Gamma. (so-called annealing coefficient.)

# When the ΔE is not improving by at least `tolerance_diff_e`
# for two consecutive iterations, annealing will stops.
tolerance_diff_e=0.01
)

## Performance Experiment: Q-Learning VS Q-Learning, loosely coupled with Deep Boltzmann Machine.¶

The tutorial in search_maze_by_q_learning.ipynb exemplifies the function of Deep Boltzmann Machine(DBM). Here, I verify if that DBM impacts on the number of searches by Q-Learning in the maze problem setting.

### Batch program for Q-Learning.¶

demo_maze_greedy_q_learning.py is a simple maze solving algorithm. `MazeGreedyQLearning`

in devsample/maze_greedy_q_learning.py is a `Concrete Class`

in `Template Method Pattern`

to run the Q-Learning algorithm for this task. `GreedyQLearning`

in pyqlearning/qlearning/greedy_q_learning.py is also `Concreat Class`

for the epsilon-greedy-method. The `Abstract Class`

that defines the skeleton of Q-Learning algorithm in the operation and declares algorithm placeholders is pyqlearning/q_learning.py. So demo_maze_greedy_q_learning.py is a kind of `Client`

in `Template Method Pattern`

.

This algorithm allow the *agent* to search the goal in maze by *reward value* in each point in map.

The following is an example of map.

```
[['#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#']
['#' 'S' 4 8 8 4 9 6 0 '#']
['#' 2 26 2 5 9 0 6 6 '#']
['#' 2 '@' 38 5 8 8 1 2 '#']
['#' 3 6 0 49 8 3 4 9 '#']
['#' 9 7 4 6 55 7 0 3 '#']
['#' 1 8 4 8 2 69 8 2 '#']
['#' 1 0 2 1 7 0 76 2 '#']
['#' 2 8 0 1 4 7 5 'G' '#']
['#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#' '#']]
```

`#`

is wall in maze.`S`

is a start point.`G`

is a goal.`@`

is the agent.

In relation to reinforcement learning theory, the *state* of *agent* is 2D position coordinates and the *action* is to dicide the direction of movement. Within the wall, the *agent* is movable in a cross direction and can advance by one point at a time. After moving into a new position, the *agent* can obtain a *reward*. On greedy searching, this extrinsically motivated agent performs in order to obtain some *reward* as high as possible. Each *reward value* is plot in map.

To see how *agent* can search and rearch the goal, run the batch program: demo_maze_greedy_q_learning.py

```
python demo_maze_greedy_q_learning.py
```

### Batch program for Q-Learning, loosely coupled with Deep Boltzmann Machine.¶

demo_maze_deep_boltzmann_q_learning.py is a demonstration of how the *Q-Learning* can be to *deepen*. A so-called *Deep Q-Network* (DQN) is meant only as an example. In this demonstration, let me cite the *Q-Learning* , loosely coupled with **Deep Boltzmann Machine** (DBM). As API Documentation of pydbm library has pointed out, DBM is functionally equivalent to stacked auto-encoder. The main function I observe is the same as dimensions reduction(or pre-training). Then the function this DBM is dimensionality reduction of *reward value* matrix.

Q-Learning, loosely coupled with Deep Boltzmann Machine (DBM), is a more effective way to solve maze. The pre-training by DBM allow Q-Learning *agent* to abstract feature of `reward value`

matrix and to observe the map in a bird’s-eye view. Then *agent* can reache the goal with a smaller number of trials.

To realize the power of DBM, I performed a simple experiment.

### Feature engineering¶

For instance, a feature in each coordinate can be transformed and extracted by reward value as so-called *observed data points* in its adjoining points. More formally, see search_maze_by_q_learning.ipynb.

Then the feature representation can be as calculated. After this pre-training, the DBM has extracted *feature points* below.
