21 December 1981 Electro-Optical Processor For Optimal Control
Author Affiliations +
An iterative optical processor (10p) that can solve iteratively systems of simultaneous linear algebraic equations is described. Modifications to the system enable it to solve the algebraic Riccati equation and the linear-quadratic-regulator (LQR) problem of optimal control. We describe the resulting electro-optical processor and illustrate how we implement the Richardson and modified Kleinman algorithms to solve the LQR problem.
