Abstract

The effectiveness of whatever action one undertakes depends on the way that action is carried out, or, to be more specific, on the parameters, one or more, used in defining that action. It means that the effect, the useful result of an action, is a function of its parameters. The problem that naturally comes to mind in this regard amounts to finding the values of these parameters for which one gets the most efficient effect. In our further investigations it will be convenient to think of the most efficient effect as indicating an optimal cutback of the undesirable outcomes of an action, i.e., a reduction to a minimum of such outcomes.
