Functional analysis, calculus of variations and optimal control / Francis Clarke.

By: Clarke, Francis, 1948-.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Graduate texts in mathematics ; 264.Publisher: London : Springer-Verlag, c.2013Description: xiv, 591 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9781447148197 (alk. paper); 1447148193 (alk. paper).Subject(s): Mathematical optimization | Functional analysis | | Engineering, Electrical October2015 | Calculus of variationsGenre/Form: -- Reading bookDDC classification: 515.7 Summary: "Functional analysis owes much of its early impetus to problems that arise in the calculus of variations. In turn, the methods developed there have been applied to optimal control, an area that also requires new tools, such as nonsmooth analysis. This self-contained textbook gives a complete course on all these topics. It is written by a leading specialist who is also a noted expositor. This book provides a thorough introduction to functional analysis and includes many novel elements as well as the standard topics ... a short course on nonsmooth analysis and geometry completes the first half of the book whilst the second half concerns the calculus of variations and optimal control"--P. [4] of cover.
