Integrals of Motion for Discrete-Time Optimal Control Problems

Delfim F. M. Torres;
Open Access
  • Published: 24 Jan 2003
We obtain a discrete time analog of E. Noether's theorem in Optimal Control, asserting that integrals of motion associated to the discrete time Pontryagin Maximum Principle can be computed from the quasi-invariance properties of the discrete time Lagrangian and discrete time control system. As corollaries, results for first-order and higher-order discrete problems of the calculus of variations are obtained.
