It developed from a series of targeted research projects s- ported both by the European Commission and Czech grant bodies. The source text has served as a common basis of communication for the research team. When accumulating and re?ning the material we found that the text could also serve as a grand example of the strength of dynamic Bayesian decision making, a practical demonstration that computational aspects do matter, a reference to ready particular solutions in learning and optimization of decision-making strategies, a source of open and challenging problems for postgraduate students, young as well as experienced researchers, a departure point for a further systematic development of advanced op- mized advisory systems, for instance, in multiple participant setting. These observations have inspired us to prepare this book. Prague, Czech Republic Miroslav K arn y October 2004 Josef B] ohm Tatiana V.
