This page contains a model of the Particle steering problem in AMPL format, making use of the TACO toolkit for AMPL control optimization extensions. This classical problem can e.g. be found in [Bryson1975]Address: New York

. The original model using a collocation formulation can be found in the COPS library. Note that you will need to include a generic AMPL/TACO support file, OptimalControl.mod. To solve this model, you require an optimal control or NLP code that uses the TACO toolkit to support the AMPL optimal control extensions.


This is the source file particle_taco.mod
