Abstract : The paper introduces singular optimal control for bilinear discrete systems. The complex structures of the singular arc are studied in detail. Two special features for the second order bilinear discrete systems are discovered. These two features which are novel are different from the higher order bilinear discrete systems. Existence, uniqueness, and optimality of the singular arc are proved. (Author)
