Book Reviews | SIAM Review | Vol. 56, No. 2 | Society for Industrial and Applied MathematicsOptimal control is a modern development of the calculus of variations and classical optimization theory. For that reason, this introduction to the theory of optimal control starts by considering the problem of minimizing a function of many variables. It moves through an exposition of the calculus of variations, to the optimal control of systems governed by ordinary differential equations. This approach should enable students to see the essential unity of important areas of mathematics, and also allow optimal control and the Pontryagin maximum principle to be placed in a proper context. A good knowledge of analysis, algebra, and methods is assumed. All the theorems are carefully proved, and there are many worked examples and exercises. Although this book is written for the advanced undergraduate mathematician, engineers and scientists who regularly rely on mathematics will also find it a useful text.

It reflects Logan's early work in the field and the continued efforts of Burns, a student of the legendary W. Reed, in related research and pedagogy. This long-conceived monograph seems an excellent place to learn the subject. The second review, of Felipe Cucker's Manifold Mirrors , involves significant crossings of the arts and mathematics. Its author faced a similar chore producing his Mathematical Excursions to the World's Great Buildings. Blessing Mudavanhu writes about applying stochastic processes to finance, an increasingly popular topic, while I review two quite distinct new books involving my favorite topic, singular perturbations.
