This paper considers stochastic optimal control of a class of nonlinear discrete-time systems with disturbances modeled by a Markov chain. The objective is to maximize the expected time or theâ€¦ (More)

The paper treats a class of optimal control problems for deterministic nonlinear discrete-time systems with the objective of maximizing the time or total yield until prescribed constraints areâ€¦ (More)

A method is presented that approximates the solution to a nonlinear optimal control problem with quadratic cost function. We assume that the nonlinear system is accurately represented by aâ€¦ (More)

This paper presents new approaches based on linear programming (LP) and mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) to solve the optimal exit-time control problem, that is to maximize the first exit-timeâ€¦ (More)

A new algorithm is presented to solve a class of deterministic drift counteraction optimal control (DCOC) problems for nonlinear discrete-time systems. The objective is to find a control policy thatâ€¦ (More)
