Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 12)


In recent years there has arisen in diverse areas a collection of important problems that have a common mathematical formulation. These are the so-called control problems. Despite their present day origins these problems, from a mathematical point of view, are variants of a class of problems that has been studied for several hundred years; namely, the problems of the calculus of variations.
