More on optimal control with paths lying on a corner
- 48 Downloads
This paper extends the Pontryagin maximum principle to allow for a finite number of corners, i.e., allowing for any finite number of discontinuities of the first derivatives with respect to the state variables. These corners are shown to raise the same computational difficulties caused by state constraints.
