Abstract : The report deals with theoretical and computational aspects or optimal control problems with state variable inequality constraints. The computational methods developed here solve bounded state variable problems by searching the constraint surface (or boundary) for the optimal junction point between the subarc on the boundary and the unconstrained subarc. The results obtained for the bounded state variables problem are extended to problems with discontinuous state variable and/or discontinuous differential equations. (Author)
