Dynamic-programming is a method of solving multi-stage problems in which decisions at one stage become the conditions governing the succeeding stages. The application of dynamic-programming to reservoirs allows them to be operated more efficiently, and this is one of the few books dedicated to this topic. It explores the strength and weaknesses of dynamic-programming before analyzing several different models in detail. This book will be a valuable reference to researchers in hydrology, water resources and engineering.
