From the reviews:
“The monograph under review concerns finite-dimensional deterministic optimal control problems. … The main body of the book is divided into seven chapters. … The variety of fully solved examples that illustrate the theory makes this text a strong educational asset. The book is recommended as a comprehensive textbook for both advanced undergraduate and all levels of graduate courses on optimal control in mathematics and engineering.” (Ovidiu Cârjă, zbMATH, Vol. 1276, 2014)
“The book presents a comprehensive treatment of both necessary and sufficient conditions for optimal control using geometric approach … . The book is of interest to senior and graduate students in engineering and mathematics, and scientists and engineers working in academic and industrial organizations. … The book is a valuable addition to some of the recent books on this ever-green field of Optimal Control … .” (D. Subbaram Naidu, Amazon.com, September, 2013)
“Grown out of well-tested lecture notes, large parts of this volume are suitable as a comprehensive textbook at an advanced undergraduate or at the graduate level, either in mathematics or in engineering … . this most readable text provides a rich and versatile resource which is suitable as a textbook in various settings, is a valuable reference for theory, and which provides a very large collection of model examples that are analyzed completely using state-of-the-art methods.” (Matthias Kawski, Mathematical Reviews, February, 2013)
“Schättler (electrical and systems engineering, Washington Univ.) and Ledzewicz (mathematics and statistics, Southern Illinois Univ.) use a geometric approach to present the theory of optimal control. … authors have developed a general approach that can be applied to a wide variety of control problems. … This book may be of interest to graduate students and researchers working in this area. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty.” (B. Borchers, Choice, Vol. 50 (5), January, 2013)
