Abstract : This memorandum investigates a technique of solving optimization problems by expanding the original functional about an approximating function to obtain a quadratic function which then can be solved exactly using dynamic programming. Applications and numerical results are presented for a one-dimensional example, a two-point problem, and approximations over a grid of points. (Author)
