Abstract:

The study of optimal control problems for distributed parameter systems is intimately connected to the study of partial differential equations andor integral equations involving two or more independent variables. The primary purpose of the dissertation is to investigate the application of optimal control theory to systems described by partial differential equations. The intent is not to advance the theory of partial differential equations per se. Thus all considerations will be restricted to the more familiar equations of the type which often occur in mathematical physics. Specifically, the distributed parameter systems under consideration are represented by a set of field equations.
