A discussion of the theory of dynamic programming, which has become increasingly well known during the past few years to decisionmakers in government and industry. The theory is applied to the numerical solution to optimization problems arising in connection with satellites and space travel, with the determination of trajectories, with feedback control and servomechanism theory, with inventory and scheduling processes, and with the allocation of resources.
