The objective of this investigation is to contribute to computing methods for optimal control problems. Typical areas of mathematical research are a sequential gradient-restoration algorithm for problems involving both differential constraints and nondifferential constraints b modified-quasilinearization algorithm for problems involving both differential constraints and nondifferential constraints and c two-point and multi-point boundary-value problems associated with stiff differential equations. Typical areas of application are the study of optimum trajectories within the atmosphere and the study of optimum aerodynamic shapes.
