hopefully somebody is able to help me with this (probably pretty easy )
I need to do a dynamic maximization over a couple of periods, where the
objective function is nonlinear, and the constraint is linear differential
equation. The problem looks like this and I tried some things but dont know
how to solve it actually

objective function: U:= Exp[-rho*t]*Log(Ct/1+(S(t)*P-4C(t))^2
constraint: Constr:= (S(t+1)-S(t))*P(t)+C(t)= = W(t)*L(t)+pi(t)*S(t)*P
where P=1
the given values can actually be something else, too.
We seek C and S.
does anyone have an idea how to fix this? Just a idea, hint or anything, I
would be more than glad :)
