Dynamic programming and minimum risk paths
: This paper addresses the problem of computing minimum risk paths by taking as objective the expected accident cost. The computation is based on a dynamic programming formulation which can be considered an extension of usual dynamic programming models: path costs are recursively computed via functions which are assumed to be monotonic. A large part of the paper is devoted to analyze in detail this formulation and provide some new results. Based on the dynamic programming model a linear programming model is also presented to compute minimum risk paths. This formulation turns out to be useful in solving a biobjective version of the problem, in which also expected travel length is taken into consideration. This leads to define nondominated mixed strategies. Finally it is shown how to extend the basic updating device of dynamic programming in order to enumerate all nondominated paths.
