Dynamic programming is a useful mathematical technique for making a sequence of inter-related decisions. It provides a systematic procedure for determining the optimal combination of decisions, given
As part of the MSc course I'm currently undertaking, there's a great need to understand optimality of processes and operations. One of them is the problem of queues while serving customers. The following
