Abstract : Miele, Damoulakis, and Cloutier developed the sequential gradient-restoration algorithm for minimizing a functional subject to differential constraints, nondifferential constraints, and terminal constraints. In the report, several numerical examples are presented, some pertaining to the fixed-final-time case and some pertaining to the free-final-time case. Both problems with bounded state and problems with bounded time rate of change of the state are investigated. The numerical results show the rapid convergence characteristics of the sequential gradient-restoration algorithm. (Author)
