Abstract : The book contains a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the basic concepts and principles employed in the optimization estimation and control of dynamic systems. Fifteen chapters are contained in the text. (1) Introduction, (2) Calculus of extrema and single stage decision processes, (3) Variational calculus and continuous optimal control, (4) The maximum principle and Hamilton Jacobi theory, (5) Optimum systems control examples, (6) Discrete variational calculus and the discrete maximum principle, (7) Optimum control of distributed parameter systems, (8) Optimum state estimation in linear stationary systems, (9) Optimum filtering for nonstationary continuous systems, (10) Least- squares curve fitting and state estimation in discrete linear systems, (11) Controllability and observability--the separation theorem, (12) Sensitivity in optimum systems control, (13) Direct computational methods in optimum systems control, (14) Quasilinearization, (15) Invariant imbedding.
