Mathematical Programming, a branch of Operations Research, is perhaps the most efficient technique in making optimal decisions. It has a very wide application in the analysis of management problems, in business and industry, in economic studies, in military problems and in many other fields of our present day Edition: 1. Applications and corresponding numerical tests are also given and discussed. To our knowledge, this is the first book to put together mathematics and computer programs for Optimal Control in order to bridge the gap between mathematical abstract algorithms and concrete numerical ones.

Optimal control theory is a mature mathematical discipline with numerous applications Of special interest in the context of this book is the The chapter is organized in the following sections: 1. Dynamic programming, Bellman equations, optimal value functions, value and policy iteration, shortest paths, Markov decision processes. 2 File Size: KB. This book may well become an important milestone in the literature of optimal control." -Mathematical Reviews "This remarkable book presents Optimal Control seen as a natural development of Calculus of Variations so as to deal with the control of engineering devices.2/5(1).

[Michael D Canon; Clifton D Cullum; E Polak] -- "This book has three basic aims: to present a unified theory of optimization, to introduce nonlinear programming algorithms to the control engineer, and to introduce the nonlinear programming expert. My field is mathematical programming, and I tend to look at optimal control as just optimization with ODEs in the constraint set; that is, it is the optimization of dynamic systems.

I would start by studying some optimization theory (not LPs but NLPs) and getting an intuitive feel. Optimal Control brings together many of the important advances in 'nonsmooth' optimal control over the last several decades concerning necessary conditions, minimizer regularity, and global optimality conditions associated with the Hamilton–Jacobi equation.

The book is largely self-contained and incorporates numerous simplifications and unifying features for the subject’s key concepts and. Optimal control and numerical software: an overview 7 The Pontryagin Maximum Prin ciple (Theorem ) r emains valid for problems with bounds.

Thus, the mathematical theory of optimal control is a branch of mathematics that deals with the nonclassical variational problems of finding (1) extrema of functionals on the solutions of equations describing controlled systems and (2) control schemes by which such extrema can be realized.

Bertsekas, Steven E. Shreve - Athena Scientific This research monograph is the authoritative and comprehensive treatment of the mathematical foundations of stochastic optimal control of discrete-time systems, including the treatment of the intricate measure-theoretic issues.

Mathematical optimization (alternatively spelt optimisation) or mathematical programming is the selection of a best element (with regard to some criterion) from some set of available alternatives.

Optimization problems of sorts arise in all quantitative disciplines from computer science and engineering to operations research and economics, and the development of solution methods has been of. Subsequent chapters focus on mathematical programming algorithms based on Lagrangian functions for solving optimal control problems; computer-aided design via optimization; optimal and suboptimal control of oscillating dynamical systems; and the application of nonlinear programming to the solution of optimal output-constrained regulator problems.

Optimal control theory is a branch of applied mathematics that deals with finding a control law for a dynamical system over a period of time such that an objective function is optimized. It has numerous applications in both science and engineering. For example, the dynamical system might be a spacecraft with controls corresponding to rocket thrusters, and the objective might be to reach the.

The book describes how sparse optimization methods can be combined with discretization techniques for differential-algebraic equations and used to solve optimal control and estimation problems.

The interaction between optimization and integration is emphasized throughout the book. Optimal control methods are used to determine optimal ways to control a dynamic system.

The theoretical work in this field serves as a foundation for the book, which the author has applied to business management problems developed from his research and classroom instruction.
