Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mathematical optimization

Yu-Chi Ho spends much of his time researching Mathematical optimization, Optimal control, Game theory, Control theory and Theory of computation. His study in Mathematical optimization is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sensitivity, Decision theory, Queueing theory, Ordinal optimization and Nonlinear system. His Optimal control study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Dynamic programming and Differential game.

His Game theory research integrates issues from Differential, Outcome, Special case and Nash equilibrium. His work on Discretization, Vehicle dynamics and Pursuit-evasion is typically connected to Estimation as part of general Control theory study, connecting several disciplines of science. While the research belongs to areas of Theory of computation, Yu-Chi Ho spends his time largely on the problem of Mathematical economics, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Incentive and Cybernetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Applied optimal control : optimization, estimation and control (1794 citations)
