This book presents a class of novel optimal control methods and games schemes based on adaptive dynamic programming techniques.
For systems with one control input, the ADP-based optimal control is designed for different objectives, while for systems
with multi-players, the optimal control inputs are proposed based on games. In order to verify the effectiveness of the proposed
methods, the book analyzes the properties of the adaptive dynamic programming methods, including convergence of the iterative
value functions and the stability of the system under the iterative control laws. Further, to substantiate the mathematical
analysis, it presents various application examples, which provide reference to real-world practices.
