A Bellman approach for two-domains optimal control problems in ℝN

G. Barles, A. Briani, E. Chasseigne (2013)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

This article is the starting point of a series of works whose aim is the study of deterministic control problems where the dynamic and the running cost can be completely different in two (or more) complementary domains of the space ℝN. As a consequence, the dynamic and running cost present discontinuities at the boundary of these domains and this is the main difficulty of this type of problems. We address these questions by using a Bellman approach: our aim is to investigate how to define properly...

A continuous finite element method with face penalty to approximate Friedrichs' systems

Erik Burman, Alexandre Ern (2007)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

A continuous finite element method to approximate Friedrichs' systems is proposed and analyzed. Stability is achieved by penalizing the jumps across mesh interfaces of the normal derivative of some components of the discrete solution. The convergence analysis leads to optimal convergence rates in the graph norm and suboptimal of order ½ convergence rates in the L2-norm. A variant of the method specialized to Friedrichs' systems associated with elliptic PDE's in mixed form and reducing the number...

A differential inclusion : the case of an isotropic set

Gisella Croce (2005)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

In this article we are interested in the following problem: to find a map u : Ω 2 that satisfies D u E a.e. in Ω u ( x ) = ϕ ( x ) x Ω where Ω is an open set of 2 and E is a compact isotropic set of 2 × 2 . We will show an existence theorem under suitable hypotheses on ϕ .

In this article we are interested in the following problem: to find a map u : Ω 2 that satisfies D u E a.e. in Ω u ( x ) = ϕ ( x ) x Ω where Ω is an open set of 2 and E is a compact isotropic set of 2 × 2 . We will show an existence theorem under suitable hypotheses on φ.

A first order partial differential equation with an integral boundary condition

Gabriella Di Blasio, Mimmo Iannelli, Eugenio Sinestrari (1981)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

In questo lavoro si considera un’equazione alle derivate parziali del primo ordine con una condizione sulla frontiera di tipo integrale. Si studia resistenza, l'unicità e il comportamento asintotico delle soluzioni.

A general Hamilton-Jacobi framework for non-linear state-constrained control problems

Albert Altarovici, Olivier Bokanowski, Hasnaa Zidani (2013)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

The paper deals with deterministic optimal control problems with state constraints and non-linear dynamics. It is known for such problems that the value function is in general discontinuous and its characterization by means of a Hamilton-Jacobi equation requires some controllability assumptions involving the dynamics and the set of state constraints. Here, we first adopt the viability point of view and look at the value function as its epigraph. Then, we prove that this epigraph can always be described...

A Hamilton-Jacobi approach to junction problems and application to traffic flows

Cyril Imbert, Régis Monneau, Hasnaa Zidani (2013)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

This paper is concerned with the study of a model case of first order Hamilton-Jacobi equations posed on a “junction”, that is to say the union of a finite number of half-lines with a unique common point. The main result is a comparison principle. We also prove existence and stability of solutions. The two challenging difficulties are the singular geometry of the domain and the discontinuity of the Hamiltonian. As far as discontinuous Hamiltonians are concerned, these results seem to be new. They...

A new LMI-based robust finite-time sliding mode control strategy for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems

Saleh Mobayen, Fairouz Tchier (2015)

Kybernetika

This paper presents a novel sliding mode controller for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems. Based on Lyapunov stability theorem and linear matrix inequality technique, a sufficient condition is derived to guarantee the global asymptotical stability of the error dynamics and a linear sliding surface is existed depending on state errors. A new reaching control law is designed to satisfy the presence of the sliding mode around the linear surface in the finite time, and its parameters are obtained...
