Abstract:

The objective of this investigation is to contribute to numerical techniques of interest in system theory in general and aerospace engineering in particular. Typical areas of mathematical research are solution of nonlinear, algebraic or trascendental, equations solution of nonlinear, ordinary differential equations solution of linear and nonlinear partial differential equations mathematical programming problems and optimal control problems. Typical areas of application are numerical solution of optimum structural problems numerical solution of optimum flight trajectories and numerical solution of optimum aerodynamic shapes. Algorithms for digital computer usage are being developed and tested on IBM 370155.
