Optimal stopping and hard terminal constraints applied to a missile guidance problem
This paper describes two new types of deterministic
optimal stopping control problems: optimal stopping
control with hard terminal constraints only and optimal
stopping control with both minimum control effort
And hard termind constraints. Both problems are initially
formulated in continuous-time (a discretetime
formulation is given towards the end of the paper) and
soIutions given via dynamic programming. A numeric
solution to the continuous-time dynamic programming
equations is then briefly discussed.
The optimal stopping with terminal constraints problem
in continuous-time is a natural description of a particular
type of missile guidance problem. This missile
guidance appiication is introduced and the presented
solutions used in missile engagements against targets.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
