CONTROL THEORY WITH APPLICATIONS TO NAVAL HYDRODYNAMICS: THE FIRST DAVID W. TAYLOR LECTURES--APRIL 1972
The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints. The method of dynamic programming is also used to solve the unconstrained control problem. Stochastic systems are introduced, and the Kalman-buoy filter is derived.
- Material contained in this report was presented in four lectures by Dr. Timman. Collation and technical editing was done by Dr. T.J. Langan, DTNSRDC Code 1552.
