MUH 453  Introduction to Optimal Control Theory
Course Objectives
To introduce the optimal control systems, state the Pontryagin 's maximum principle, Lagrange principle and Bellman's dynamic programming method, apply the theory on popular mathematics and economy problems and design the solution algorithms.
