Abstract : This thesis treats the problem of finding the time-optimal control for a class of systems which is a subset of the class of systems known as singularly perturbed. The term singularly perturbed is derived from the fact that the dimension of the equations for the class of systems is reduced from n=m to n if mu is set equal to zero.
