From the Back Cover:

Optimal Control brings together many of the important advances in 'nonsmooth' optimal control over the last several decades concerning necessary conditions, minimizer regularity, and global optimality conditions associated with the Hamilton–Jacobi equation. The book is largely self-contained and incorporates numerous simplifications and unifying features for the subject’s key concepts and foundations.

Features and Topics:

* a comprehensive overview is provided for specialists and nonspecialists

* authoritative, coherent, and accessible coverage of the role of nonsmooth analysis in investigating minimizing curves for optimal control

* chapter coverage of dynamic programming and the regularity of minimizers

* explains the necessary conditions for nonconvex problems

This book is an excellent presentation of the foundations and applications of nonsmooth optimal control for postgraduates, researchers, and professionals in systems, control, optimization, and applied mathematics.
