Examples and numerical results

The results reported in this section have been obtained by using the implementation DIRCOL (cf. [17]) of the direct collocation method mentioned in the previous sections. The use of grid refinement techniques yields a sequence of related nonlinear programs with increasing dimensions. In each macro iteration step, one nonlinear program has to be solved by the Sequential Quadratic Programming method NPSOL due to Gill, Murray, Saunders, and Wright [10]. The reported estimates of adjoint variables are direct outputs of DIRCOL.
