Abstract : The focus of this research was to develop theoretical and computational tools for optimal control and adaptive parameter identification and control and adaptive parameter systems, primarily large flexible space structures Approximations results for optimal control of infinite-dimensional systems were drived along with numerical results. Also developed was an approximation theory for discrete-time optimal regulator problems, which included problems with flexible structures as a particular example.
