## Dynamic Programming: Models and ApplicationsIntroduction to sequential decision processes covers use of dynamic programming in studying models of resource allocation, methods for approximating solutions of control problems in continuous time, production control, decision-making in the face of an uncertain future, and inventory control models. A prior course in operations research is prerequisite. 1982 edition. |
