In this paper we introduce and develop the notion of simple close curve magnetization. We provide an application to Bellman’s lost in the forest problem assuming special geometric conditions between the hiker and the boundary of the forest.

Lost in a Forest
TLDR
To solve the "lost in a forest" problem the authors must find the "best" escape path, and Bellman proposed two different interpretations of "best," one in which the maximum time to escape is minimized, and one inWhich the expected time to Escape is minimized.
