The lpSolve package can handle integer programming problems.

Here is an example of using dynamic programming in R from
first principles in another setting:

A senior researcher had a lot of trouble with R becuase on any given run it would eat up all the computers memory and need to start using the hard disk. Yet, the memory needed was not substantial - saving the worksapce, exiting and recalling would noticebly start of tthe progam at a much lower memory use, level and a quick deteroration in a few thousand iterations.
