The selection of topics is useful and coherent, and the book is well organized. is highly effective in explaining basic ideas of optimal control. It can also be a useful reference to engineers and researchers who want to use applied optimal control theories for solving engineering problems .". Optimal control theory is a branch of applied mathematics that deals with finding a control law for a dynamical system over a period of time such that an objective function is optimized. It has numerous applications in both science and engineering. For example, the dynamical system might be a spacecraft with controls corresponding to rocket thrusters, and the objective might be to reach the moon with .

Optimal Control: An Introduction to the Theory and Its Applications (Dover Books on Engineering) by Michael Athans and Peter L. Falb | Dec 29, out of 5 stars 3. Optimal Control Theory Emanuel Todorov University of California San Diego Optimal control theory is a mature mathematical discipline with numerous applications in both science and engineering. It is emerging as the computational framework of choice for studying the neural control of movement, in much the same way that probabilistic infer-.

It also treats both continuous-time and discrete-time optimal control systems, giving students a firm grasp on both methods. Among this book's most outstanding features is a summary table that accompanies each topic or problem and includes a statement of the problem with a step-by-step solution. A rigorous introduction to optimal control theory, with an emphasis on applications in economics. This book bridges optimal control theory and economics, discussing ordinary differential equations, optimal control, game theory, and mechanism design in one volume. Technically rigorous and largely self-contained, it provides an introduction to the use of optimal control theory for deterministic.
