Abstract : Automatic pulse systems are described by difference equations. The solution of earlier optimal process problems was reduced to the detection of a trajectory connecting the origin of the coordinates with a point corresponding to initial conditions. This approach is based on the application of a convolution equation instead of a system of difference equations of the first order. This makes it possible to solve an optimal process problem on the basis of an elementary system of the extremum theory of multiple variable functions.
