Abstract:

Bellmans dynamic programming and Pontryagins maximum principle are generally regarded as two alternative ways of solving the problem of op imum control of a nonlinear system. A multistage decision process is described and applied to an optimal trajectory. The maximum principle is derived when one tries to overcome certain practical difficulties in dynamic programming.
