3 Variational Approach to Problem Solution The indirect approach to solution of the optimal control problem is based on a generalisation of the calculus of variations. Necessary conditions for an extremum are derived by considering the first variation of the performance index J with constraints adjoined in the manner of Lagrange. Since the setting is infinite dimensional, the familiar Lagrange multipliers are now functions of time, λ = λ(t), and are called co-states in analogy to the system state x = x(t).

The result is simple conditions linking the gradient of f with the gradient of g. Summary for Two or More Variables The developments for n > 1 followed the pattern of the scalar case. However, since the underlying geometry is more involved than for intervals, new possibilities arose: saddle points, equality and inequality constraints. Constraints have a very strong influence on the nature of the optimal solution. As in the scalar case, the interior and boundary points must be treated separately, giving rise to the powerful method of Lagrange multipliers and the Karush–Kuhn– Tucker conditions.

However, if both the initial and terminal conditions are specified, then this is a TPBVP: the trajectory must be a solution of the defining differential equation, but must pass through 44 COMPUTATIONAL OPTIMAL CONTROL: TOOLS AND PRACTICE prescribed points at both ends (boundaries). In the shell example, this means that we must find such a combination of barrel orientation and projectile speed that the shell indeed lands at the prescribed impact point. This underpins the idea of the numerical method of shooting.
