POCP: a package for Polynomial Optimal Control Problems

Developed by Didier Henrion, Jean-Bernard Lasserre and Carlo Savorgnan.

POCP is a free Matlab package using GloptiPoly 3, and, optionally, YALMIP. It is aimed at approximately solving nonlinear optimal control problems for which all the problem data are polynomial. POCP reformulates such control problems as generalized problems of moments, in turn converted by GloptiPoly 3 as semidefinite programming problems.

POCP 1.0 (1 July 2008) can be downloaded as a tar.gz archive, including this documentation.

Please forward comments, suggestions and bug reports to Didier Henrion.
