Scientific interests: optimisation and optimal control
The numerical solution of optimal control of dynamical systems is a rich process that typically involves modelling, optimisation, differential equations (most notably Hamiltonian ones), nonlinear equations (e. g. for shooting), pathfollowing methods… and, at every step, automatic differentiation. We report on recent experiments with Julia on a variety of applied or more theoretical problems in optimal control and try to survey what the practitioner will find, and would like to find.
