This book is devoted to optimal syntheses in control theory and focuses on minimum time on 2-D manifolds. The text outlines examples of applicability, introduces geometric methods in control theory, and analyzes single input systems on 2-D manifolds including classifications of optimal syntheses and feedbacks, their singularities, extremals projection and minimum time singularities. Various extensions and applications are also illustrated.

From the reviews:
"This book provides an excellent illustration of concepts and methods of geometric optimal control at work. ... This book is a welcome addition to a number of texts that treat the mathematical aspects of control theory from a geometric point of view ... . accessible to the advanced, mathematically inclined graduate student and rewarding in their results. They provide plentiful and excellent material for a mathematically oriented graduate course on the topic ... ." (Heinz Schaettler, SIAM Reviews, Vol. 47 (3), 2005)
