On an application of dynamic programming to the synthesis of logical systems.
An application of dynamic programming to problems arising in the synthesis of logical systems. In a number of fields a system in one state must be optimally converted into another state (e.g., in mathematical economics, in the theory of control processes, in network theory, and in trajectory processes). The present study considers a type of question occurring in the design of computers and switching circuits. The problem is treated in general terms, and a special example is given to illustrate the methods.
