Hermite series approach to optimal control. (English) Zbl 0636.93036
Summary: A general expression for the operational matrix of integration, \({\mathbb{P}}\), in the case of Hermite polynomials is derived. The structure of \({\mathbb{P}}\) is simple and it is therefore computationally attractive. Using this \({\mathbb{P}}\), the optimal control with quadratic index problem and the singularly perturbed optimal control problem are studied. Some numerical examples are also included.
