This ebook represents a longer and considerably revised model of my earlierbook, optimum keep an eye on in difficulties ofMathematical Physics,originally released in Russian in 1975. approximately 60% of the textual content has been thoroughly revised and significant additions were integrated that have produced a virtually new textual content. My goal was once to modernize the presentation but additionally to maintain the unique effects, a few of that are little recognized to a Western reader. the belief of composites, that is the middle of the fashionable concept of optimization, was once initiated within the early seventies. The reader will locate right here its implementation within the challenge of optimum conductivity distribution in an MHD-generatorchannel flow.Sincethen it has emergedinto an in depth idea that's present process a continual improvement. The ebook doesn't faux to be a textbook, neither does it supply a scientific presentation of the speculation. relatively, it displays an idea which I think of as basic within the glossy method of optimization of dis tributed platforms. Bibliographical notes,though huge, don't fake to be exhaustive besides. My thank you are because of ProfessorJean-Louis Armand and ProfessorWolf Stadler whose pleasant suggestions in translating and sharpening the textual content used to be so important. i'm indebted to Mrs. Kathleen Durand and Mrs. Colleen Lewis for the challenging activity of typing huge parts of the manuscript.

77) (the capacitance of the body B) . 83) is the apparent mass in the same direction. Usually, one considers the following restrictions on ~: (a) the area S of ~ is given; (b) the volume V of the body B is given; (c) the diameter D of the body B is given. The quantities C, W, P, like S and V, represent geometrical characteristics of the body B; therefore, a restriction can be formulated by specifying any of these quantities. In particular, we can pose the following optimization problems: (d) Find an extremum of C for a given W [and (or) P]; (e) find an extremum of W for a given P [and (or) C] ; (f) find an extremum of P for a given C [and (or) W] .

H m- I • We assume further that a smooth (m - l l-dimensional manifold f o of discontinuity of the control u divides the region G into two parts G+ and G_ . Here, the surface I'0 is to be determined together with the control functions. The total variation A! of! on the surface I'0 is made up of the variation (j! of the function f itself and the variation (af/ aN) (jN associated with the displacement of the surface. 37) Note that the parametric variables' are discontinuous on [0 together with the controls u.

To this end, we consider the "moments" aL/azi,,; and al/a~i and show that they are equal to the Lagrangian multipliers gij and 8ij. We introduce the "Hamilton function" H(x, z,~, U, g) = (z~iLz~, - LL{i ~X{ h(q, z, K, V, 8) = gjjX{ - (a, a) = (~,lzi,i -/) z1,,=-r. 45) H,"J =X{ and hqj = -Iq, J hV k = -Iv.. hzj = -/~, h «. "? However, this result is of a formal nature since the function H cannot be regarded as a true Hamilton function until the variables?
