Abstract:

It is shown how the functional equation technique of dynamic programming may be used to obtain a new computational and analytic approach to variational problems. The limited memory capacity of present-day digital computers limits the successful application of these techniques to first and second order systems at the moment, with limited application to higher order systems.
