Abstract:
Computational mathematics has long been recognized as a powerful tool to penetrate
the barrier of nonlinearity and complexity of dynamical systems and it has become
increasingly attractive to control theorists and engineers. The focus of this talk is on
the Pseudospectral (PS) method for the optimal control of nonlinear systems subject to
mixed state and control constraints. Originally developed as a method for large-scale
fluid dynamics, PS methods have been rapidly developed during the last decade as an
efficient approach in solving complicated optimal control problems. In this talk we will
address the problems of feasibility, convergence, and the rate of convergence for PS
optimal control methods. Some illustrative examples will also be presented.
