I am reading about
Dynamic Programming from Cormen.
In the beginning of the chapter it says (relating to the term Dynamic Programming):
"Programming” in this context refers to a tabular method, not to writing computer code.
I can not really understand what this statement means.
I mean, I understand that the dynamic programming algorithms look up solutions, but I get a feeling that this point here defines something fundamental on the Dynamic Programming that I am not grasping.
