Abstract : During the period of research, efforts were made in the areas of (1) controllability of infinite dimensional bilinear control systems; (2) singular perturbations approach to optimization problems with non-convex cost; (3) nonlinear continuum mechanics and phase transitions; and (4) optimal control of a problem arising in robotics. Results were obtained in all areas using various methods of nonlinear analysis. (Author)
