This is quite reasonable, since most of the currently in- As one of the first general texts on the teresting research in this area of physics is in theory of optimal control from an engineering the thermal energy region. The text treats almost all current examples of control problems that permit analytic solutions, and its unified approach makes frequent use of geometric ideas to encourage students’ intuition.

However, so timely of the computation of optimal solutions and and comprehensive a book must be written other practical considerations, and very few in a hurry.
