On Some Systems Controlled by the Structure of Their Memory
We consider an optimal control problem governed by an ODE with memory playing the role of a control. We show the existence of an optimal solution and derive some necessary optimal...

Analysis of optimal control models for the human locomotion
In recent papers it has been suggested that human locomotion may be modeled as an inverse optimal control problem. In this paradigm, the trajectories are assumed to be solutions of...

Optimal Control of a Well-Stirred Bioreactor in the Presence of Stochastic Perturbations
We study the stochastic model for bioremediation in a bioreactor with ideal mixing. The dynamics of the examined system is described by stochastic differential equations. We consid...
