Decision theory, in statistics, a set of quantitative methods for reaching optimal decisions.A solvable decision problem must be capable of being tightly formulated in terms of initial conditions and choices or courses of action, with their consequences. In general, such consequences are not known with certainty but are expressed as a set of probabilistic outcomes. D. E.

The calculus of variations: a historical perspective The Pontryagin maximum principle: from necessary conditions to the construction of an optimal solution Reachable sets of linear time-invariant systems: from convex sets to the bang-bang theorem Optimal control theory is a branch of mathematical optimization that deals with finding a control for a dynamical system over a period of time such that an objective function is optimized.

Principle towards the constructionof an Optimal Synthesis. In Section 1, we introduce the denition of Optimal Control problem and give a simple example. In Section 2 we recall some basics of geometric control theory as vector elds, Lie bracket and con-trollability.

In Section 3, that is the core of these notes, we introduce Optimal Control. This chapter serves as a brief introduction to optimal control. Dynamic programming-based solutions to optimal control problems are derived, and the connections between the methods based on dynamic programming and the methods based on the calculus of variations are discussed.

Optimal control theory has been extensively applied to the solution of economics problems since the early papers that appeared in Shell () and the works of Arrow () and Shell (). The ﬁeld is too vast to be surveyed in detail here, however. Several books in the area are: Arrow and Kurz (), Hadley and Kemp (), Takayama.

This chapter is not meant to be an exhaustive primer on linear control theory, although key concepts from optimal control are introduced as needed to build in-tuition. Indeed, this is generally the case in optimal control [25], dynamic programming [24], and related methods (e.g., iterative linear quadratic regulators [48] and deep reinforcement learning Hybrid Systems, Optimal Control and Hybrid Vehicles: Theory, Methods and Applications Thomas J.

BÃhme, Benjamin Frank (auth.) This book assembles new methods showing the automotive engineer for the first time how hybrid vehicle configurations can be modeled as systems with discrete and continuous controls. The methods surveyed here decouple the single-agent requirements from the detailed graph topology and produce control designs based on single-agent equations.

Control systems are most often based on the principle of feedback, whereby the signal to be controlled is compared to a desired reference signal and the discrepancy used to compute corrective control action.
