Description

Optimal control theory has numerous applications in both science and engineering.

This book presents basic concepts and principles of mathematical programming in terms of set-valued analysis and develops a comprehensive optimality theory of problems described by ordinary and partial differential inclusions.

Key Features

  • In addition to including well-recognized results of variational analysis and optimization, the book includes a number of new and important ones
  • Includes practical examples

Readership

Researchers, undergraduate and graduate students in variational and nonlinear analysis, optimization, optimal control, and their applications. It will also be of interest to researchers interested in modeling dynamic economic systems.

"The goals of this book are to present the basic concepts and principles of mathematical programming in terms of set-valued analysis and on the basis of the method of approximation, to develop a comprehensive optimality theory of problems described by ordinary and partial differential inclusion."--Zentralblatt MATH 2012-1235-65002
