Asymptotic forms for the optimal expected payoffs (minimal costs) for a generalized class of "Secretary" problems are investigated by an analysis of a related family of differential equations. A class of unbounded payoff functions with bounded expected payoffs is determined and methods for generating the expected payoffs are developed.
