The applications of the theory of Optimal Control of distributed parameters is an extremely wide field and, although a large number of questions remain open, the whole subject continues to expand very rapidly. The author does not attempt to cover the field but does discuss a number of the more interesting areas of application.
Partial Differential Inequalities and Unilateral Problems Variational Inequalities; Problems of Optimal Control for Linear Distributed Parameter Systems; Nonlinear Systems; Optimization of Geometrical Elements; Singular Perturbations and Optimal Control; Remarks on Numerical Methods.
