12s. If the maximum thrust that can be developed at point i either in the positive or negative direction is restricted to a value of Fi , formulate the problem of minimizing the total time of travel under the following assumptions: 1. The rocket travels against the gravitational force. 2. The mass of the rocket reduces in proportion to the distance traveled. 3. The air resistance is proportional to the velocity of the rocket. 9 17 Control points in the path of the rocket. SOLUTION Let points (or control points) on the path at which the thrusts of the rocket are changed be numbered as 1, 2, 3, .

6 Classification Based on the Deterministic Nature of the Variables Based on the deterministic nature of the variables involved, optimization problems can be classified as deterministic and stochastic programming problems. Stochastic Programming Problem. A stochastic programming problem is an optimization problem in which some or all of the parameters (design variables and/or preassigned parameters) are probabilistic (nondeterministic or stochastic). 7 are deterministic programming problems. 95.
