**Combinatorial Data Analysis: Optimization by Dynamic Programming**

Combinatorial information research (CDA) refers to a large type of tools for the examine of correct facts units within which the association of a set of items is basically significant. the focal point of this monograph is at the identity of preparations, that are then additional limited to the place the combinatorial seek is performed by means of a recursive optimization approach according to the overall ideas of dynamic programming (DP).

By the Borel-Lebesgue lemma a finite number of such neighborhoods can be chosen which cover all of supp 4>. 1 we now choose I/IjEC(f(X) with O~I/Ij~ 1 and 1/1 j = 1 in K j.

2 and it is shown there that distributions may be defined locally provided that the local definitions are compatible. In addition it is proved that if u is a distribution then there is a unique way to define u(cp) for all CPEC oo with supp un supp cp compact. 3. 6). 6 on. 1. 1) where faE C(X) and the sum is finite. Here X is an open set in ]R". 1). 1. A distribution u in X is a linear form on Cg'(X) such that for every compact set K c X there exist constants C and k such that 34 II. 2) lu(
