This paper presents two demonstrably convergent, first-order, differential dynamic programming algorithms for the solution of optimal control problems with constraints on the control, but without constraints on the trajectory or the terminal state. The second of these algorithms can be used on more difficult problems than the first one, but it is correspondingly more complex.
