When using the Pontryagin Maximum Principle in
optimal control problems the most difficult part of the numerical
solution is associated with the nonlinear operation of the
maximization of the Hamiltonian over the control variables. For a
class of problems, the optimal control vector is a vector
function with continuous time derivatives. A method is presented
to find this smooth control without the maximization of
Hamiltonian. Three illustrative examples are considered.
This is joint work with Ilya Ioslovich.
