This site describes a Fuller's problem variant with no terminal constraints and additional Mayer term for penalizing deviation from given reference values.

## Mathematical formulation

For almost everywhere the mixed-integer optimal control problem is given by

## Parameters

We use and .

## Reference Solutions

If the problem is relaxed, i.e., we demand that be in the continuous interval instead of the binary choice , the optimal solution can be determined by means of direct optimal control.

The optimal objective value of the relaxed problem with is . The objective value of the binary controls obtained by Combinatorial Integral Approimation (CIA) is .
