Modern Automatic Control

ECE 68000 / 3 Cr. (3 Class)

Theoretical methods in optimal control theory. Topics include the calculus of variations and the Pontryagin minimum principle with applications to minimum energy problems. Geometric methods will be applied to the solution of minimum time problems. Computational methods, singular problems, observer theory, and sufficient conditions for existence of solutions are also discussed.
