Optimal Control

Optimal Adaptive Control and Differential Games by Reinforcement Learning Principles

Adaptive controllers and optimal controllers are two distinct methods for the design of automatic control systems. Adaptive controllers learn online in real time how to control systems but do not yield optimal performance, whereas optimal controllers must be designed offline using full knowledge of the systems dynamics. This boo...

Discrete-Time Inverse Optimal Control for Nonlinear Systems

Discrete-Time Inverse Optimal Control for Nonlinear Systems proposes a novel inverse optimal control scheme for stabilization and trajectory tracking of discrete-time nonlinear systems. This avoids the need to solve the associated Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation and minimizes a cost functional, resulting in a more efficient con...

Optimal Supervisory Control of Automated Manufacturing Systems

This monograph presents the state-of-the-art developments in the design of behaviorally and structurally optimal livenessen-forcing Petri net supervisors with computationally tractable approaches. It details optimal supervisory control problems arising in automated production systems and outlines a methodology to achieve the opt...

Introduction to the Calculus of Variations and Control with Modern Applications

Introduction to the Calculus of Variations and Control with Modern Applications provides the fundamental background required to develop rigorous necessary conditions that are the starting points for theoretical and numerical approaches to modern variational calculus and control problems. The book also presents some classical suf...

Optimal Control Theory: An Introduction

Geared toward upper-level undergraduates, this text introduces three aspects of optimal control theory: dynamic programming, Pontryagin's minimum principle, and numerical techniques for trajectory optimization. Numerous problems, which introduce additional topics and illustrate basic concepts, appear throughout the text. Solutio...

A First Course in the Calculus of Variations

This book is intended for a first course in the calculus of variations, at the senior or beginning graduate level. The reader will learn methods for finding functions that maximize or minimize integrals. The text lays out important necessary and sufficient conditions for extrema in historical order, and it illustrates these cond...
