Abstract:

Three methods, using dynamic programming concepts and principles, for analytically solving a variational problem. The conventional dynamic programming method is described and illustrated and two alternatives to the conventional method are developed. While the derivations are new, the results are equivalent to those of the classical Hamilton-Jacobi method of solving optimization problems. Author
