Particle steering problem
|Particle steering problem|
|Discrete control functions:||1|
|Interior point equalities:||7|
The Particle steering problem minimizes "the time taken for a particle, acted upon by a thrust of constant magnitude, to achieve a given altitude and terminal velocity." (Cite and problem taken from the COPS library)
The problem is given by
where is the position of the particle, is the control angle and is the constant magnitude of thrust.
