Abstract : The paper considers the numerical solution of optimal control problems involving a function subject ot differential constraints, a state variable inequality constraint, and terminal constraints. The problem is to find the state x(t), the control u(t), and the parameter pi so that the functional is minimized, while the constraints are satisfied to a predetermined accuracy.
