Cosmological inflationary models based on a self-interacting scalar field are considered. A slow-roll model is formulated as an optimal control problem. Application of Pontryagin’s maximum principle leads to an exact solution. 
A Closed Universe with Maximum Life-Time
A closed universe with maximum life-time is constructed using optimal control. Einstein's field equations are used with varying cosmological "constant". The second time derivative of the Hubble
Contemporary Cosmological Paradigms and their Impact on Educational Research
Three modern cosmological models are considered in the article: the Standard Cosmological Model, the theory “Evolving Matter” and the Mental Universe, which, according to the authors, clearly
Simulation of implementable quantum-assisted genetic algorithm
This work demonstrates and simulates the performance of an implementable quantum-assisted genetic algorithm and shows that the quantum algorithm converges to the optimal solution faster than a classical algorithm.
A Fast Reduced-Space Algorithmic Framework for Sparse Optimization
The most popular type of regularization is `1-regularization in the last two decades, which has demonstrated its utility in improving the interpretation and accuracy of model estimation in both theoretical and practical aspects.

Two new exact solutions to Einstein's equations that describe the evolution of inflationary universe models are presented, one of which describes double inflation and the other displays a Mexican-hat potential.
The Condition of Hydrostatic Equilibrium of Stellar Models Using Optimal Control
The condition of hydrostatic equilibrium of relativistic stellar models is formulated as an optimal control problem. Application of Pontryagin's maximum principle leads directly to the
New classes of exact solutions in inflationary cosmology
The problem of determining a representation of the self-interaction potential in the form of a time dependence of the field potential energy which admits the existence of an inflationary regime and

Analysing the behaviour of inflationary universe models at the extrema of $\phi$ derives sufficient constraints on the parameter space such that inflation may occur as both an early and late-time phenomenon.
Inflationary universe: A possible solution to the horizon and flatness problems
The standard model of hot big-bang cosmology requires initial conditions which are problematic in two ways: (1) The early universe is assumed to be highly homogeneous, in spite of the fact that
Singular Inflation
We prove that a homogeneous and isotropic universe containing a scalar field with a power-law potential, V (φ) = Aφn, with 0 < n < 1 and A > 0 always develops a finite-time singularity at which the
On the maximum mass of a neutron star
On the basis of Einstein's theory of relativity, the principle of causality, and Le Chatelier's principle, it is here established that the maximum mass of the equilibrium configuration of a neutron
Investigating a model of optimized active galactic nucleus feedback
The feedback heating from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in massive galaxies and galaxy clusters can be thought of as a naturally occurring control system which plays a significant role in regulating
Control and Optimization
Abstract. A wide range of various classical and modern control methods is classified from the point of view of required information and put in the context of optimization.
