Keywords: optimal control, optimization, differentialalgebraic equations, numerical methods
Differentialalgebraic equations are the most natural way to mathematically model many complex systems in science and engineering. Once the model is derived, it is important to optimize the design parameters and control it in the most robust and efficient way to maximize performance. This book presents the latest theory and numerical methods for the optimal control of differentialalgebraic equations. The following features are presented in a readable fashion so the results are accessible to the widest audience:
Audience
This book is intended for applied mathematicians, engineers, and computational scientists from a variety of disciplines who are interested in the optimal control of problems. It will be of interest to those developing methods and theory and those working on realworld applications, especially in control and chemical and mechanical engineering.
