## Abstract in another language

Consider yourself as the coach of a soccer team. You are in the lead, and the final 15 minutes of the match are about to start. Should you take out a striker and send a fresh defensive player onto the field? In this talk, a two-scale Markov Decision Process model (2MDP) is presented that captures the most basic aspects of this strategic question. In contrast to pure statistical methods to validate the historic success of various decision rules, the 2MDP approach strives to provide a-priori decision support for a particular situation depending on the individual skills of the players involved. Such an approach was first applied to beach volleyball by Hoffmeister and Rambau. A formal generalization of the 2MDP concept is explained in the succeeding talk by Hoffmeister in this session. In this talk on research in progress, based on Richter’s Master’s thesis, the first 2MDP modeling a strategic question in a team game with time-based duration is explained. Moreover, preliminary numerical results on artificial data are presented.
