The Calculus of Variations; A Blaisdell Book in the Pure and Applied Sciences.

The Calculus of Variations; A Blaisdell Book in the Pure and Applied Sciences. This book is worth its weight in gold to the aspiring applied mathematician.

Chapman & hall/CRC applied mathematics and nonlinear science series. Introduction to. The Calculus of Variations and Control. Too often the calculus of variations is thought of as an old area of classical mathematics with little or no relevance to modern mathematics and applications. This is far from true. However, during the first half of the 20th century, most mathematicians in the United States focused on the intricacies of the mathematics and ignored many of the exciting new (modern) applications of variational calculus.

Поставляется из: Англии Описание: Introduction to the Calculus of Variations and Control with Modern Applications provides the fundamental background required to develop rigorous necessary conditions that are the starting points for theoretical and numerical approaches to modern variational calculus and control problems.

The book also presents some classical sufficient conditions and discusses the importance of distinguishing between the necessary and sufficient conditions. In the first part of the text, the author develops the calculus of variations and provides complete proofs of the main results

The book also presents some classical sufficient conditions and discusses the importance of distinguishing between the necessary and sufficient conditions. In the first part of the text, the author develops the calculus of variations and provides complete proofs of the main results. He explains how the ideas behind the proofs are essential to the development of modern optimization and control theory. Focusing on optimal control problems, the second part shows how optimal control is a natural extension of the classical calculus of variations to more complex problems.

Focusing on optimal control problems, the second part shows how optimal control is a natural extension of the classical calculus of variations to more complex problems. By emphasizing the basic ideas and their mathematical development, this book gives you the foundation to use these mathematical tools to then tackle new problems. The text moves from simple to more complex problems, allowing you to see how the fundamental theory can be modified to address more difficult and advanced challenges.
