Pruning error analysis for a class of curse-of-dimensionality free methods


2014 4th Australian Control Conference (AUCC) | IEEE | Published : 2014


In the context of computational nonlinear optimal control, curse-of-dimensionality (CoD) refers to the phenomenon of exponential growth of computational cost with respect to the dimension of state and input space. It is well-known that CoD is the major drawback of grid-based computational methods, which are consequently restricted their applications to low dimensional problems. Switching linear quadratic regulators (SLQR) is a class of nonlinear optimal control problems for which a CoD free method has been developed. However, it has been observed that this CoD free method suffers from a different form of computational complexity known as curse-of-complexity (CoC) which refers to the phenomen..
