Turnpike properties in the calculus of variations and optimal controlMI 03.08.011 (Boltzmannstr. 3, 85748 Garching)

We discuss the structure of approximate solutions of variational and optimal control

problems on large intervals, and show that a turnpike property holds for large classes of problems.

To have this property means, roughly speaking, that the approximate optimal trajectories are

determined mainly by the integrand, and are essentially independent of the choice of

time intervals and data, except in regions close to the endpoints of the time interval.
