# prodyn: Implementation of the dymaic programming algorithm for optimal system control¶

## Contents¶

This documentation contains the following pages:

## Features¶

• prodyn uses the dynamic programming algorithm to calculate the decision seuqence which leads to minimal total costs
• prodyn can be apllied to any system function which follows the required structure for inputs and outputs
• Forward and backward implementation of the dynamic programming algorithm
• Supports systems with multiple state variables

## Get Started¶

2. Copy the prodyn.py file in the prodyn folder to a directory which is already in python’s search path or add the prodyn folder to python’s search path (sys.path) (how to)
