  • Leonard D. Berkovitz
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 12)


In this chapter we shall state the maximum principle and shall use it to characterize the optimal controls in several important classes of problems. The proof of the maximum principle will be given in the next chapter.
