The Joy of Dynamic Programming

As you might know already, I have two major challenges in my life right now:

  1. Lose weight
  2. Make DP more accessible to analysts and decision makers

The first is very personal in nature and I am very reluctant to discuss it in this forum. The only thing I can say about this important matter here is that I am working hard on this project. Unfortunately, progress is very slow, if any.

The DP challenge is much easier and there are indications that something constructive can be done in this area.

My plan is to compile an on line book on DP dealing specifically with the very difficult modelling aspects of DP. I have already developed more than twenty modules for this purpose and, Yes, I do plan to complete this project before I retire.
