Research themes

Our research deals wi teh design of numerical methods for dynamic optimization:
  • Dynamic programming techniques, or discretization of the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation.
  • Their application to deterministic or stochastic optimal control.
  • The study of methods for the direct method in optimal control.
  • The design of numerical tools in linear and nonlinear optimization.
  • Industrial applications within the industry and economy.
