Abstract

In this note, we propose an algorithm which represents a compromise between the two extremes. Network flow analysis is employed to effect local optimizations and then dynamic programming ideas are introduced in order to piece the local solutions together into an optimal global policy. In this way, it is hoped to make maximum use of the best features of each method: the speed of the network flow techniques and the broad generality of dynamic programming.
