M - Full Term, 04:15PM to 06:45PM
Location: URI 328

Instructor: Awi Federgruen


This is a Ph.D. level course on Dynamic Programming (DP). DP is a method for optimizing dynamic decisions, i.e. decisions that are contingent upon information to be revealed in the future. It is a powerful technical tool utilized in many fields of Engineering, Science and Management Science, including Supply Chain Management, Revenue Management and Finance. The course will focus on stochastic, discrete time optimization both in finite and infinite horizon, and will also cover some approximate dynamic programming techniques along with a variety of applications.
