Use of a Computer Language in Teaching Dynamic Programming. Final Report.
Trimble, C. J.; And Others
Most optimization problems of any degree of complexity must be solved using a computer. In the teaching of dynamic programing courses, it is often desirable to use a computer in problem solution. The solution process involves conceptual formulation and computational Solution. Generalized computer codes for dynamic programing problem solution usually are not practical because of the wide variation and the type of problems solved. A computer language was written which permits a student to read his formulation directly into the computer and obtain the solution. The computer language (DYPRO) was used, and it greatly improved the operation of the course. A reference list is appended, along with additional data about the input and output of the language.
