Optimal Control (EE 60565)University of Notre Dame

Description: Optimal control is concerned with control laws that maximize a specified measure of a dynamical system's performance. This course is a rigorous introduction to the classical theory of optimal control. The topics covered in this course include optimization of static functions, the calculus of variations, Pontryagin's principle, dynamic programming, linear quadratic optimal control, noncooperative differential games with applications to control theory
