The problem of obtaining a control policy which is optimum in some respect for a specified system is one of the more pressing problems of automatic control theory today. L. S. Pontryagin stated his Maximum Principle in 1956 and L. I. Rozonoer discussed and extended the work in a series of articles published in 1959. The Maximum Principle, as it applies to the "free right end" problem for a non-linear, one-dimensional system, is utilized in conjunction with the CDC 1604 digital computer to obtain optimal control policies for several different cost functions. The authors wish to express their appreciation for the encouragement given them by Dr. Harold A. Titus of the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School and to express their gratitude to Miss Mary E. Haynes of the Computer Facility, U. S. Naval Postgraduate School whose patient programming assistance materially aided in the successful completion of this thesis.
