Problem formulation; Conditions of optimality for the basic problem; Some necessary and some sufficient conditions for nonlinear programming problems; Discrete optimal control problems; Optimal control and linear programming; Optimal control and quadratic programming; Convex programming algorithms; Free-end-time optimal control problems. This book presents numerous applications to real world systems from various industries, including aerospace, and discusses the design of subsystem-level optimal filters. Organized into independent chapters for easy access to the material, this text also contains several case studies, examples, exercises, computer assignments, and formulations Cited by:

Another great book is "Optimal control theory: An introduction to the theory and its applications" by Peter Falb and Michael Athans, also published by Dover. Also, I would recommend looking at the videos of the edX course "Underactuated Robotics", taught by professor Russ Tedrake of MIT. The leading and most up-to-date textbook on the far-ranging algorithmic methododogy of Dynamic Programming, which can be used for optimal control, Markovian decision problems, planning and sequential decision making under uncertainty, and discrete/combinatorial optimization.

About this book A NEW EDITION OF THE CLASSIC TEXT ON OPTIMAL CONTROL THEORY As a superb introductory text and an indispensable reference, this new edition of Optimal Control will serve the needs of both the professional engineer and the advanced student in mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering. An original feature is the amount of space devoted to the important and fascinating subject of optimal control. The work is divided into two parts. Part one deals with the control of linear time-continuous systems, using both transfer function and state-space methods.

As a superb introductory text and an indispensable reference, this new edition of Optimal Control will serve the needs of both the professional engineer and the advanced student in mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering.

Its coverage encompasses all the fundamental topics as well as the major changes that have occurred in recent years. The book is composed of invited contributions by experts from around the world who work with optimization and optimal control either at a theoretical level or in practice.

Some key topics presented include: equilibrium problems, stochastic processes, decision algorithms, scheduling, queuing theory, quantum computing, agriculture, and industrial. Optimal Control assumes a background in the state-variable representation of systems; because matrix manipulations are the basic mathematical vehicle of the book, a short review is included in the 5/5(1).

The purpose of the book is to consider large and challenging multistage decision problems, which can be solved in principle by dynamic programming and optimal control, but their exact solution is computationally intractable. We discuss solution methods that rely on approximations to produce suboptimal policies with adequate performance.

Optimal control theory is the science of maximizing the returns from and minimizing the costs of the operation of physical, social, and economic processes. Geared toward upper-level undergraduates, this text introduces three aspects of optimal control theory: dynamic programming, Pontryagin's minimum principle, and numerical techniques for trajectory optimization.

The method is largely due to the work of Lev Pontryagin and Richard Bellman in the s, after contributions to calculus of variations by Edward J. McShane.For greater economy and elegance, optimal control theory is introduced directly, without recourse to the calculus of variations.

The connection with the latter and with dynamic programming is explained in a separate chapter. A second purpose of the book is to draw the parallel between optimal control theory and static optimization.
