Summary and Info
This book is devoted to the theory and applications of second-order necessary and sufficient optimality conditions in the calculus of variations and optimal control. The authors develop theory for a control problem with ordinary differential equations subject to boundary conditions of equality and inequality type and for mixed state-control constraints of equality type. The book is distinctive in that necessary and sufficient conditions are given in the form of no-gap conditions; the theory covers broken extremals where the control has finitely many points of discontinuity; and a number of numerical examples in various application areas are fully solved. Audience: This book is suitable for researchers in calculus of variations and optimal control and researchers and engineers in optimal control applications in mechanics; mechatronics; physics; economics; and chemical, electrical, and biological engineering.
