From the reviews:

“This textbook for graduate students introduces the reader to the basic results and methods in optimal control and applies these methods to problems in life sciences and economics, using MATLAB. … The book contains many figures and MATLAB programs … . Each chapter is concluded with bibliographical notes and theoretical and MATLAB exercises. In a short appendix, basic results from functional analysis and ODEs are provided.” (W. Huyer, Monatshefte für Mathematik, 2013)

“This is an interesting and useful textbook that introduces the reader to methods of optimal control through easily accessible exercises. It is possible to read the book with no knowledge of MATLAB and only some basic knowledge of calculus, which makes most parts truly accessible to undergraduate students.”­­­ (Urszula Ledzewicz, SIAM Review, Vol. 53 (4), 2011)

“This book is a guide for those interested in solving real world optimal control problems, including both the theoretical analysis of their mathematical models and suitable computer programs for numerical simulation. The book is self-contained. … An extensive reference list and an index are also included. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in mathematics, biology, economics, engineering, and other fields.” (Gheorghe Moroşanu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1206, 2011)

[T]his is an interesting and useful textbook that introduces the reader to methods of optimal control through easily accessible exercises. It is possible to read the book with no knowledge of MATLAB and only some basic knowledge of calculus, which makes most parts truly accessible to undergraduate students.SIAM
