Abstract:

Rau 1971 presents a class of sequential problems including two important special cases from the search literature. Raus class is presented there in terms of conditions that certain functions must satisfy. Here those conditions are reformulated to show what Raus restrictions imply. Finally a subclass of Raus class is discussed that contains both of the important special cases, and which was used for further analysis in the paper of Kadane and Simon 1975. Author
