(2005);The paper addresses the problem of steering a fully actuated marine vehicle along a desired path. The methodology adopted for path following control deals explicitly with vehicle dynamics and plant parameter uncertainty. ...
(2006);This paper addresses the problem of real-time generation of near-optimal control for nonlinear plants. It advocates using the direct method of calculus of variations based on a priory approximation of the optimal solution ...
