Comp 122, Spring 2004 nprog - 5 Lin / Devi Dynamic Programming Dynamic Programming is an algorithm design technique for optimization problems : often minimizing or maximizing. Like divide and conquer, DP solves problems by combining solutions to subproblems. Unlike divide and conquer, subproblems are not independent. » Subproblems may share subsubproblems, » However, solution to one subproblem may not affect the solutions to other subproblems of the same problem. (More on this later.) DP reduces computation by » Solving subproblems in a bottom-up fashion. » Storing solution to a subproblem the first time it is solved. » Looking up the solution when subproblem is encountered again. Key: determine structure of optimal solutions

Comp 122, Spring 2004 nprog - 6 Lin / Devi Steps in Dynamic Programming 1. Characterize structure of an optimal solution. 2. Define value of optimal solution recursively. 3. Compute optimal solution values either top- down with caching or bottom-up in a table . 4. Construct an optimal solution from computed values. We’ll study these with the help of examples.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
