Linear control system optimization using a model-based index of performance
This paper deals with a method of optimizing the free coefficients in the characteristic equation of a linear feedback control system. The optimization is carried out by minimizing an index of performance associated ...
Control of nonlinear systems
(Cambridge, Massachusetts: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1964-01)
Dynamic programming is employed to obtain a solution to the problem of controlling a nonlinear system in an optimal fashion, subject to a quadratic performance index. The technique sued is similar to that given by Merriam ...
