Considered is a class of monotone mappings underlying many sequential optimization problems over a finite or infinite horizon which are of interest in applications. This class of problems includes deterministic and stochastic optimal control problems, minimax control problems, Semi-Markov Decision problems and others. Some fixed point properties of the optimal value function are proven and the convergence properties of a related generalized dynamic programming algorithm are analyzed. A sufficient condition is given for convergence, which is widely applicable and considerably strengthens known related results.
