1. Introduction. Optimal control theory is an outcome of the calculus of variations, with a history stretching back over years, but interest in it really mushroomed only with the advent of the computer, launched by the spectacular successes of optimal trajectory prediction in aerospace applications in the early s. 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.

The words ``control theory'' are, of course, of recent origin, but the subject itself is much older, since it contains the classical calculus of variations as a special case, and the first calculus of variations problems go back to classical Greece. From the very beginning in the late s of the basic ideas of optimal control, attitudes toward the topic in the scientific and engineering community have ranged from an excessive enthusiasm for its reputed capability ofsolving almost any kind of problem to an (equally) unjustified rejection of it as a set of abstract mathematical concepts with no real utility.

Optimal control theory is the science of maximizing the returns from and minimizing the costs of the operation of physical, social, and economic processes. Geared toward upper-level undergraduates, this text introduces three aspects of optimal control theory: dynamic programming. Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control Theory also traces the historical development of the subject and features numerous exercises, notes and references at the end of each chapter, and suggestions for further study. Offers a concise yet rigorous introduction ; Requires limited background in control theory or advanced mathematics.
