Well one way is to see this is the Fibonacci recurrence. Home Return all these operations-- take constant time. In the end we'll settle on a sort of more accurate perspective. We'll go over here. I should really only have to compute them once. » Guess. In order to compute-- I'll do it backwards. I mean, now you know. How do we know it's exponential time, other than from experience? So exciting. We don't talk a lot about algorithm design in this class, but dynamic programming is one that's so important. That's a little tricky. This is the one maybe most commonly taught. Or I want to iterate over n values. Here's my code. Still linear time, but constant space. So you remember Fibonacci numbers, right? So I have to minimize over all edges uv. I could tell you the answer and then we could figure out how we got there, or we could just figure out the answer. And that's often the case. I'm not thinking, I'm just doing. Preferences? Good. Hopefully. Very good. Operations Research (OR) is the study of mathematical models for complex organizational systems. All right. In both contexts it refers to simplifying a complicated problem by breaking it down into simpler sub-problems in a recursive manner. Download the video from iTunes U or the Internet Archive. OK. There's v subproblems here I care about. And we're going to do the same thing over and over and over again. How am I going to do that? I don't know. Just take it for what it is. So it's the same thing. Default solvers include APOPT, BPOPT, and IPOPT. And then we return that value. So if that key is already in the dictionary, we return the corresponding value in the dictionary. So this is a general procedure. Why?

The first time you call fn minus 3, you do work. Because I really-- actually, v squared. Obviously, don't count memoized recursions. 2 15. This min is really doing the same thing. We know how to make algorithms better. Try all the guesses. Operations Research Operations Research Sr. No. I'm going to write it in a slightly funny way. Not that carefully. It is easy.

So total time is the sum over all v and v, the indegree of v. And we know this is number of edges. I'd like to write this initially as a naive recursive algorithm, which I can then memoize, which I can then bottom-upify. So you could just store the last two values, and each time you make a new one delete the oldest. So if I have a graph-- let's take a very simple cyclic graph. There's no tree here. You're subtracting 2 from n each time. What this is really saying is, you should sum up over all sub problems of the time per sub problem. And before we actually do the computation we say, well, check whether this version of the Fibonacci problem, computing f of n, is already in our dictionary. OK. Freely browse and use OCW materials at your own pace. PDF | Dynamic programming (DP) has been used to solve a wide range of optimization problems. But whatever it is, this will be the weight of that path. All right. Lecture Videos And that should hopefully give me delta of s comma v. Well, if I was lucky and I guessed the right choice of u. Add them together, return that. Nothing fancy. I should've said that earlier. It's just a for loop. Double rainbow. So here's the idea. So we can think of them as basically free. And this is probably how you normally think about computing Fibonacci numbers or how you learned it before. 4 Examples The Knapsack Problem The Monty Hall Problem Pricing Financial Securities 2/60. Abstract The massive increase in computation power over the last few decades has substantially enhanced our ability to solve complex problems with their performance evaluations in diverse areas of science and engineering. Flash and JavaScript are required for this feature. And computing shortest paths. It says, Bellman explained that he invented the name dynamic programming to hide the fact that he was doing mathematical research. In this situation we had n subproblems. The Fibonacci and shortest paths problems are used to introduce guessing, memoization, and reusing solutions to subproblems. ), Learn more at Get Started with MIT OpenCourseWare, MIT OpenCourseWare is an online publication of materials from over 2,500 MIT courses, freely sharing knowledge with learners and educators around the world. Because I had a recursive formulation. But if you do it in a clever way, via dynamic programming, you typically get polynomial time. How much do we have to pay? Operations Research Methods in Constraint Programming inequalities, onecan minimize or maximize a variablesubjectto thoseinequalities, thereby possibly reducing the variable’s domain. OK. Don't count recursions. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Guess all the possible incoming edges to v, and then recursively compute the shortest path from s to u. Operations Research Lecture Notes PDF. What does that even mean? By adding this k parameter I've made this recurrence on subproblems acyclic. This does exactly the same thing as the memoized algorithm. So choose however you like to think about it. OK. PROFESSOR: Terrible. Can't be worse. The number of rabbits you have on day n, if they reproduce. If you ever need to solve that same problem again you reuse the answer. Because I said that, to do a bottom up algorithm you do a topological sort of this subproblem dependency DAG. So did I settle on using memo in the notes? This code's probably going to be more efficient practice because you don't make function calls so much. And this is a technique of dynamic programming. All right. I'm doing it in Fibonacci because it's super easy to write the code out explicitly. So I think you know how to write this as a memoized algorithm. What is it? So it's the product of those two numbers. And then you reuse those solutions. I guess another nice thing about this perspective is, the running time is totally obvious. It's really-- so indegree plus 1, indegree plus 1. It may make some kind of sense, but--. You recursively call Fibonacci of n minus 2. We have the source, s, we have some vertex, v. We'd like to find the shortest-- a shortest path from s to v. Suppose I want to know what this shortest path is. This is central to the dynamic programming. I don't know where it goes first, so I will guess where it goes first. You see that you're multiplying by 2 each time. So let me give you a tool. Then I added on the edge I need to get there. We don't know what the good guess is so we just try them all. OK. We just forgot. A little bit of thought goes into this for loop, but that's it. And then there's this stuff around that code which is just formulaic. Is that a fast algorithm? And then we take constant time otherwise. But first I'm going to tell you how, just as an oracle tells you, here's what you should do. If you're acyclic then this is the running time. OK. What does it mean? And wherever the shortest path is, it uses some last edge, uv. So to create the nth Fibonacci number we have to compute the n minus first Fibonacci number, and the n minus second Fibonacci number. I think I made a little typo. Because to do the nth thing you have to do the n minus first thing. So it's not going to be efficient if I-- I mean, this is an algorithm, right? We're going to treat this as recursive call instead of just a definition. All right. So straightforward. Approximate Dynamic Programming [] uses the language of operations research, with more emphasis on the high-dimensional problems that typically characterize the prob-lemsinthiscommunity.Judd[]providesanicediscussionof approximations for continuous dynamic programming prob-lems that arise in economics, and Haykin [] is an in-depth So I can look at all the places I could go from s, and then look at the shortest paths from there to v. So we could call this s prime. So this part will be delta of su. The algorithmic concept is, don't just try any guess. Optimal substructure. Very simple idea. We don't usually worry about space in this class, but it matters in reality. OK. So now I want you to try to apply this principle to shortest paths. The idea is you have this memo pad where you write down all your scratch work. In what follows, deterministic and stochastic dynamic programming problems which are discrete in time will be considered. And then you remember all the solutions that you've done. This code is exactly the same as this code and as that code, except I replaced n by k. Just because I needed a couple of different n values here. Description: This lecture introduces dynamic programming, in which careful exhaustive search can be used to design polynomial-time algorithms. The general idea is, suppose you don't know something but you'd like to know it. 3 LPP-simplex method, Big M method, Two-phase simplex, Special conditions. It's a very general, powerful design technique. But in particular, this is at least the nth Fibonacci number. Try them all. Dynamic programming is breaking down a problem into smaller sub-problems, solving each sub-problem and storing the solutions to each of these sub-problems in an array (or similar data structure) so each sub-problem is only calculated once. One thing you can do from this bottom-up perspective is you can save space. I don't know how many you have by now. So that's a bad algorithm. I still like this perspective because, with this rule, just multiply a number of subproblems by time per subproblem, you get the answer. Dynamic Programming Operations Research Anthony Papavasiliou 1/60. It then gradually enlarges the prob-lem, finding the current optimal solution from the preceding one, until the original prob-lem is solved in its entirety. The number of subproblems now is v squared. Not so obvious, I guess. I want to get to v. I'm going to guess the last edge, call it uv. Operations Research or Qualitative Approach MCQ Questions and answers with easy and logical explanations. The tool is guessing. All right. In all cases, if this is the situation-- so for any dynamic program, the running time is going to be equal to the number of different subproblems you might have to solve, or that you do solve, times the amount of time you spend per subproblem. It's kind of a funny combination. There is some shortest path to a. So it's going to be infinite time on graphs with cycles. Psaraftis (1980) was the ﬁrst to attempt to explicitly solve a deterministic, time-dependent version of the vehicle routing problem using dynamic programming, but And so I just need to do f1, f2, up to fn in order. Use OCW to guide your own life-long learning, or to teach others. They're not always of the same flavor as your original goal problem, but there's some kind of related parts. We all know it's a bad algorithm. So I'm just copying that recurrence, but realizing that the s to u part uses one fewer edge. But we come at it from a different perspective. It's not so obvious. The time is equal to the number of subproblems times the time per subproblem. Now I'm going to draw a picture which may help. Did we already solve this problem? Then there's fn minus 3, which is necessary to compute this one, and that one, and so on. And that is, if you want to compute the nth Fibonacci number, you check whether you're in the base case. I only want to count each subproblem once, and then this will solve it. Then you return f. In the base case it's 1, otherwise you recursively call Fibonacci of n minus 1. » So how could I write this as a naive recursive algorithm? So what I'm really doing is summing over all v of the indegree. PROFESSOR: You guys are laughing. But I looked up the actual history of, why is it called dynamic programming. It's pretty easy. No recurrences necessary. Actually, I am really excited because dynamic programming is my favorite thing in the world, in algorithms. So I'm going to tweak that idea slightly by guessing the last edge instead of the first edge. But in particular, certainly at most this, we never call Fibonacci of n plus 1 to compute Fibonacci of n. So it's at most n calls. But in fact, I won't get a key error. It's like a lesson in recycling. OK. Done. DAGs seem fine-- oh, what was the lesson learned here? Now, I've drawn it conveniently so all the edges go left to right. But once it's done and you go over to this other recursive call, this will just get cut off. OK. We're just going to get to linear today, which is a lot better than exponential. But I'm going to give you a general approach for making bad algorithms like this good. This code does exactly the same additions, exactly the same computations as this. Is to think of-- but I'm not a particular fan of it. So I count how many different subproblems do I need to do? When I compute the kth Fibonacci number I know that I've already computed the previous two. Why? Sequence Alignment problem And that general approach is called memoization. If I was doing this I'd essentially be solving a single-target shortest paths, which we talked about before. And so basic arithmetic, addition, whatever's constant time per operation. I already said it should be acyclic. You could do this with any recursive algorithm. In general, this journey can be disected into the following four layers So there are v choices for k. There are v choices for v. So the number of subproblems is v squared. So this is going to be 0. All right. In general, dynamic programming is a super simple idea. So it's another way to do the same thing. So one perspective is that dynamic programming is approximately careful brute force. Unfortunately, I've increased the number of subproblems. But in some sense recurrences aren't quite the right way of thinking about this because recursion is kind of a rare thing. So when this call happens the memo table has not been set. So that's the origin of the name dynamic programming. But we're going to do it carefully. Shortest path from here to here, that is the best way to get there with, at most, one edge. This is an important idea. Usually it's totally obvious what order to solve the subproblems in. Indeed it will be exactly n calls that are not memoized. Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The bigger n is, the more work you have to do. Definitely better. And so in this sense dynamic programming is essentially recursion plus memoization. Which is usually a bad thing to do because it leads to exponential time. Suppose this was it. And then once we've computed the nth Fibonacci number, if we bothered to do this, if this didn't apply, then we store it in the memo table. So why linear? It can apply to any recursive algorithm with no side effects I guess, technically. Storage space in the algorithm. That's when you call Fibonacci of n minus 2, because that's a memoized call, you really don't pay anything for it. So the memoized calls cost constant time. This is the good case. You could start at the bottom and work your way up. It's not so tricky. Excited because dynamic programming will be exactly n calls that are not memoized of parts.
