Optimal harvesting for age-structured population
This chapter is intended to be a bridge towards scientific research on optimal control theory. The problems investigated here are much more complex than those presented in the previous chapters. We focus on optimal harvesting problems for age-structured population dynamics, which are extremely important from a biological as well as from an economical point of view. Even if the degree of complexity of the optimal control problems investigated in this chapter is much higher than before we can see that the steps we have to follow are the same as for the optimal control problems investigated in Chapter 2.
