This is quite reasonable, since most of the currently in- As one of the first general texts on the teresting research in this area of physics is in theory of optimal control from an engineering the thermal energy region. It develops the basic mathematical background, with a coherent formulation of the control problem and discussions of the necessary conditions for optimality based on the maximum principle of Pontryagin. As a result, much of the material physical examples illustrate and motivate the reported contorl quoted in an uncritical manner.

It is unusual to find so main contribution of the book is the complete much detail in what, because of the limited and modern coverage of the thermalization interest and applicability of the subject, field. For example, a Research Department variational weak variations only treatment Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation of the free-end-point optimal control problem, Bethpage, New York and a lengthy heuristic proof of the maximum principle is given.

On the other hand, of the switching surfaces in state space and the from the same point of view, the book has feedback structures for various low-order many merits.

Special features include numerous specific problems, carried through to engineering realization in block diagram form. Falb Limited preview – The rigor are carefully noted. It serves as a bridge to the technical literature, enabling students to evaluate the implications of theoretical control work, and to judge atgans merits of papers on the subject.
