Description: This textbook offers a concise yet rigorous introduction to calculus of variations and optimal control theory, and is a self-contained resource for graduate students in engineering, applied mathematics, and related subjects. Designed specifically for a one-semester course, the book begins with calculus of variations, preparing the ground for optimal control. It then gives a complete proof of the maximum principle and covers key topics such as the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman theory of dynamic programming and linear-quadratic optimal control.Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control Theoryalso traces the historical development of the subject and features numerous exercises, notes and references at the end of each chapter, and suggestions for further study.Offers a concise yet rigorous introductionRequires limited background in control theory or advanced mathematicsProvides a complete proof of the maximum principleUses consistent notation in the exposition of classical and modern topicsTraces the historical development of the subjectSolutions manual (available only to teachers)
