Unformatted text preview: been hired. Employees will be hired and then ﬁred at some time during the 10month period. The problem is to determine how many employees should be hired and ﬁred in each of the 10 months. Assume that each employee produces 100 items per month. The cost of labor is proportional to the number of available workers, but there is an additional cost due to hiring and ﬁring. If u ( k ) workers are hired in the k th month (negative u ( k ) corresponds to ﬁrings), the processing cost can be argued to be u 2 ( k ). At the end of the 10month period, all workers must be ﬁred . Set up this problem as a minnorm problem that can be solved using the dual approximation theorem of Chapter 3. Then ﬁnd the solution u ( k ) for k = 1 , ··· , 10....
