Title: Pontryagin meets Bellman

Abstract: The objective is this talk is to demonstrate that a judicious combination of Pontryagin minimum principle and Bellman Principle of Optimality yields novel insight on the solution of optimal control problems.

The webinar is organized by Claudia Califano (vice-chair education of IFAC TC 2.3), Bayu Jayawardhana (vice-chair publication of IFAC TC 2.3), Christophe Prieur (chair of IFAC TC 2.3 Non-linear Control Systems) and Andrea Serrani (chair of IEEE TC Nonlinear Systems and Control).
