An intermediate state method for the time-parallelized solving of optimal control problems

J. Salomon

Abstract
In this talk, we present a general approach to parallelize efficiently optimal control solvers. This method, first introduced in 2006, is based on the introduction of intermediate states that enables to decompose the original optimality system into similar sub-systems that can be treated independently using standard solvers. We present a recent improving on the method that makes it fully efficient and discuss the role of the solver used in parallel.
