A Method of Centers Based on Barrier Functions for Solving Optimal Control Problems with Continuum State and Control Constraints
This paper describes a method of centers based on barrier functions for solving optimal control problems with continuum inequality constraints on the state and control. The method decomposes the original problem into a sequence of easily solved optimal control problems with control constraints only. The method requires only approximate solution of these problems.
