Stability and feasibility of state constrained MPC without stabilizing terminal constraints
TLDR
In this paper we investigate stability and recursive feasibility of a nonlinear receding horizon control scheme without terminal constraints and costs but imposing state and control constraints. Expand

Free time optimal control problems with time delays
TLDR
Solutions to optimal control problems for retarded systems, on a fixed time interval, satisfy a form of the Maximum Principle, in which the co-state equation is an advanced differential equation. Expand

Optimal Control Problems with Mixed and Pure State Constraints
TLDR
This paper provides necessary conditions of optimality for optimal control problems, in which the pathwise constraints comprise both “pure” constraints on the state variable and “mixed" constraints on control and state variables. Expand

Stratified Necessary Conditions for Differential Inclusions with State Constraints
TLDR
The concept of stratified necessary conditions for optimal control problems, whose dynamic constraint is formulated as a differential inclusion, was introduced by F. H. Clarke. Expand

A Fast Job Scheduling System for a Wide Range of Bioinformatic Applications
TLDR
We describe a scheduling architecture operating at the application level, able to distribute jobs over a large number of hierarchically organized nodes, as typical of current clusters. Expand
