Computational Considerations for Some Deterministic and Adaptive Control Processes.
A discussion of design and utilization considerations in the fields of guidance and control which lead to problems in the calculus of variations and dynamic programming. The resulting equations are frequently so complex that modern digital computers must be used in their resolution. It is shown that the quasilinearization method discussed in P-1163 can be used effectively to deal with some nonlinear Euler equations and their associated boundary values. It is also shown that the concepts of dynamic processes such as occur in sequential detection schemes in radar and communication.
