Accumulated Reward Solver
Accumulated reward solver
The accumulated reward solver (ars) solves for transient interval-of-time variables, i.e., for intervals for which both and are finite. The starting and stopping times are specified for each interval or time-averaged interval of time reward variable in the reward model. The ars solver gives the expected accumulated reward, as well as the expected time-averaged accumulated reward over the interval. The results are derived by uniformization. <xr id="fig:arsSolver" /> shows the editor for the accumulated reward solver and its available options and adjustable parameters. The options are similar to the transient reward solver options.
The output file contains the means, both time-averaged and accumulated, of the performability variables. It also contains additional information similar to that described for the trs solver.
Pitfalls and Hints
- The ars solver is an extension of the trs solver, and the remarks for trs apply here as well.
