Obviously, T envisioned a text that would offer a conclusive and incon testable formulation of dynamic programming. But I soon discovered that dynamic programming actually invites a certain amount of disagreement with respect to its definition because, by its very nature, it can be approached from a variety of angles depending on one's approach to modeling analysis and problem solving. We thus find the intuitionist at one end, the formalist at the other. and the rest somewhere in between. So in this book i examine the question what is dymamic programming? knowing full well that whatever answer one formulates, by necessity it will be subjective in nature This book does not ain to portray dynamic programining as a practical tool. It does not examine how dynamic programming solves realworld prob lems in inventory, scheduling, sport and recreation, expert systems etc. The book aims to give a portrait of dynamic programming as a methodology to identify its constituent components, explain how it looks at problems and describe how it proposes to tackle them. It should therefore appeal to readers in academia as well as to practitioners who have an interest in this facet of dynamic programming It should be of particular interest lo readers who leach dynarnic prO gramming, as in my view, this book offers a refreshing supplement to texts which present dynamic programming from the conventional standpoint of Learn,Teach Dynanic Pyoyr'aTrerning by Esarmple. These readers are advised that, although the book is not designed to serve as a coursetext, because it is sclfcontaincd it can bc uscd as ancillary reading for graduatc and advanccd undergraduate courses in dynamic programming As for my method of probing the topic; although I fully recognize that certain aspects of dynamic programming are probably best suited for a non formal treatment, my exposition throughout this book is strictly formal Still, the mathematical knowledge required for following the presentation minimal calculus, set theory and some optimization theory, all at the elementary level. The book does demand, however, mathematical maturity which comes into play more in modelling and formulation than in analysis I would like to thank my colleagues and graduate students for their helpful cOllinents and constructive crilicisIn on various drafts ol the manuscript.I am particularly grateful to Alleli Domingo, Emmanuel Macalalag and Steven 11 Ostrover for their comments on the final draft. I thank Ruth Dawe and Henry Bochm from Marcel Dckkor Inc. for their encouragement, patience and support. And finally, special Chanks are due to my wile, Shoshana, for her major contribution to this bool Substantial work on this book was done when i was with the nation Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences of the CSiR, Pretoria, South Afri oshe snegov Melbourn e June 1991 P reface(second edition) In the intervening years since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1992, I continued working on various aspects of dynamic programming and the results of this research appeared in a number of publications. So when i was approached by the publisher with the suggestion to consider a second edition of this book, I decided to take up the oller realizing Chat a second edition should provide me with an opportunity to enhance certain chapters in the first edition with the material (ideas, examples, etc. ) that I had developed in more recent years. I was particularly keen to revisit a topic that I consider crucial for a good understanding of dynamic programming, namely Modeling And so, I expanded Che discussions on sequential decision nodels and che dynamic programming modcls,ng, ar role of the state variable in modeling, and I added a new chapter on forward I also added a new chapter where i discuss the Pash method also known as Reaching and I give a dynamic programming perspective on Dijkstras algorithm for the shortest path problem. My main objective in including this discussion on Dijkstra's algorithm is to make it abundantly clear that in spite of the impression given by the computer science literaturethi gorithm is in fact a dynamic programming algorithm par excellence Thus, apart from slight modifications in the contents of existing chapters the major revisions are as follows igIn Chapter 10: R.cfincmcnts Chapter ll: The State w chap Chapter 14: FC er 15: Push ew append Appendix e: The C As for the book's ncw titlo With hindsight, it seems to me that this should have been the book's title in ils lirst edition!
