Optimal control theory is a mathematical discipline for studying the neural control of movement. This chapter presents a mathematical introduction to optimal control theory and discusses the following topics: Bellman equations, Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations, Ricatti equations, and Kalman filter. It also examines the duality of optimal control and optimal estimation, and, finally, describes optimal control models and suggests future research directions.

Keywords:   optimal control theory, neural control, movement, Bellman equations, Ricatti equations, Kalman filter, optimal estimation
