Abstract:

In this paper, an alternative formulation is presented in dynamic programming terms which is independent of the dimension of x, the state vector. It is based upon an extension of the concept of state variable and has application to a number of systems with switching characteristics. In its simplest form, the approach was used in the study of adaptive control processes.
