Closed-form solutions are derived for coupled Riccati-like matrix differential equations describing the solution of a class of optimal finite time quadratic regulator problems with terminal constraints. Analytical solutions are obtained for the feedback gains and the closed-loop response trajectory. A computational procedure is presented which introduces new variables for efficient computation of the terminal control law. Two examples are given to illustrate the validity and usefulness of the…

A simple solution to the finite-horizon LQ problem with zero terminal state
Closed-form expressions for the optimal state and costate trajectories of the Hamiltonian system, as well as the corresponding control law, are derived through theutions of two infinite-horizon LQ problems, thus avoiding the use of the Riccati differential equation.
