Abstract : The report summarizes work on the identification of distributed parameter systems including two technical publications. In addition, two specific applications of optimization of complex systems is described. The areas are minimization of drag by optimum profile shaping and design of power systems. A preliminary bibliography in this later area is given. Included in the report is a listing of the reports issued during the contract period. (Author)
