Summary and Info
Several complete textbooks of mathematics on geometric optimal control theory exist in the literature, but little has been done with relevant applications in control engineering. This monograph is intended to fill this gap. It is based on graduate courses for mathematicians and physicists and presents results from two research projects in space mechanics and quantum control. The presentation is self-contained and readers can use our techniques to perform similar analysis in their own problems. Numerical tools have been developed in parallel during the research projects (shooting and continuation methods).
