Promotional Information

Treats optimal problems for systems described by ODEs and PDEs, using an approach that unifies finite and infinite dimensional nonlinear programming.

About the Author

Hector O. Fattorini graduated from the Licenciado en Matematica, Universidad de Buenos Aires in 1960 and gained a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, in 1965. Since 1967, he has been a member of the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles.


Review of the hardback: 'This outstanding monograph will be a great source both for experts and for graduate students interested in calculus of variations, non-linear programming, optimisation theory, optimal control and relaxation theory.' European Mathematical Society
Review of the hardback: '... an impressive monograph on infinite dimensional optimal control theory. This is an original and extensive contribution which is not covered by other recent books in the control theory.' J. P. Raymond, Zentralblatt fur Mathematik
"Fattorini's extensive monograph is a fundamental contribution to optimal control theory of evolution finite- or infinite-dimensional systems, and summarizes and extends his many decades of intensive research in this area...This outstanding monograph should be on the desk of every expert in optimal control will be a great source for graduate students interested in calculus of variations, nonlinear programming, optimization theory and optimal control."
