This paper introduces certain nonlinear partially observable stochastic optimal control problems which are equivalent to completely observable control problems with finite-dimensional state space. In some cases the optimal control laws are analogous to linear-exponential-quadratic-Gaussian and linear-quadratic-Gaussian tracking problems. The problems discussed allow nonlinearities to enter the unobservable dynamics as gradients of potential functions. The methodology is based on explicit solutions of a modified Duncan-Mortensen-Zakai equation.

Baldi, S.; Michailidis, I.; Kosmatopoulos, E. B.; Papachristodoulou, A.; Ioannou, Petros A. (2014)This paper describes a new control scheme for approximately optimal control (AOC) of nonlinear systems, convex control design (ConvCD). The key idea of ConvCD is to transform the approximate optimal control problem into a ...
