Geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate engineering students, this text introduces the theory and applications of optimal control. However, so timely of the computation of optimal solutions and and comprehensive a book must be written other practical considerations, and very few in a hurry.

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.

The text treats almost all current examples of control problems that permit analytic solutions, and its unified approach makes frequent use of geometric ideas to encourage students’ intuition. Rather than presenting an exhaustive treatise, Optimal Control offers a detailed introduction that fosters careful thinking and disciplined intuition.

### Optimal control: An introduction to the theory and its applications | Michael Athans –

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. The exposition is meticulous plants, the application is of a rather academic perhaps too much and the book is written nature, though certainly not devoid of in a precise mathematical style in terms of interest.
