The Bellman method is a tool that can be used to solve a wide variety
of problems from harmonic analysis. However, the problem of finding the
Bellman function for a specific problem was originally only possible with a
guess-and-check method, although that problem has since been mitigated.
This paper applies the method pioneered by Vasily Vasyunin of finding the
Bellman function directly to a problem presented in JanineWittwer’s survey
article , and also explores how Bellman functions can be used to prove
