When solving optimal control problems, indirect methods such as multiple shooting suffer from difficulties in finding an appropriate initial guess for the adjoint variables. For, this initial estimate must be provided for the iterative solution of the multipoint boundary-value problems arising from the necessary conditions of optimal control theory. Direct methods such as direct collocation do not suffer from this problem, but they generally yield results of lower accuracy and their iteration… CONTINUE READING
