Dynamic programming In mathematics, computer science, economics, and bioinformatics, dynamic programming is a method for solving complex problems by breaking them down into simpler subproblems.
Flat pseudospectral method The flat pseudospectral method is part of the family of the Ross–Fahroo pseudospectral methods introduced by Ross and Fahroo.
Gauss pseudospectral method The Gauss pseudospectral method (GPM), one of many topics named after Carl Friedrich Gauss, is a direct transcription method for discretizing a continuous optimal control problem into a nonlinea...
Legendre–Clebsch condition In the calculus of variations the Legendre-Clebsch condition is a second-order condition which a solution of the Euler-Lagrange equation must satisfy in order to be a maximum (and not a minimum ...
Linear-quadratic regulator One of the main results in the theory is that the solution is provided by the linear-quadratic regulator (LQR), a feedback controller whose equations are given below.
Optimal control Optimal control theory, an extension of the calculus of variations, is a mathematical optimization method for deriving control policies.
Optimal projection equations The reduced-order LQG problem (fixed-order LQG problem) overcomes this by fixing a-priori the number of states of the LQG controller.
Pontryagin's minimum principle Pontryagin's maximum (or minimum) principle is used in optimal control theory to find the best possible control for taking a dynamical system from one state to another, especially in the presenc...
