Abstract

In this note we introduce a model of a dynamic inspection process which we call "The Traveling Inspector Model." The problem is formulated as a single-controller, zero-sum, undiscounted stochastic game, with some special structure. This structure ensures that the game is solvable by a relatively simple linear program.
