Abstract

Motivated by a class of first order differential equations generated by some optimal control problems this paper provides, using the methodology introduced by the Theory of Connections, least-squares solutions of first-order differential equations systems subject to linear constraints on the vector’s components. This paper solves all different cases occurring in 2×2 linear time-varying systems with forcing term. Then, it shows how to solve a 4 × 4 system generated by a simple optimal control problem and how to solve a generic 3×3 time-varying differential equation system subject to relative and integral constraints on the vector components.
