Stochastic Optimal Control: The Discrete-Time Case
by Dimitri P. Bertsekas, Steven E. Shreve - Athena Scientific , 1996
This research monograph is the authoritative and comprehensive treatment of the mathematical foundations of stochastic optimal control of discrete-time systems, including the treatment of the intricate measure-theoretic issues.
Optimal Control: Linear Quadratic Methods
by B.D.O. Anderson, J.B. Moore - Prentice-Hall , 1989
Numerous examples highlight this treatment of the use of linear quadratic Gaussian methods for control system design. It explores linear optimal control theory from an engineering viewpoint, with illustrations of practical applications.
Linear Optimal Control
by B.D.O. Anderson, J.B. Moore - Prentice Hall , 1971
This book constructs a bridge between the familiar classical control results and those of modern control theory. Many modern control results do have practical engineering significance, as distinct from applied mathematical significance.
