Presenting a thorough introductory exposition of optimal control theory, this work differs from the existing textbooks on the subject due to its emphasis on the economic interpretation of the mathematics and the qualitative properties of the solutions. Moreover, it is a modern exposition of optimal control theory in that it presents numerous complementary methods. It is aimed at first-year and second-year PhD students in economics, agricultural and resource economics, operations research, management science, and applied mathematics.
