GPOPS (which stands for вЂњGeneral Pseudospectral OPtimal Control SoftwareвЂќ) is an open-source MATLAB optimal control software than implements the Gauss and Radau hp-adaptive pseudospectral methods. These methods approximate the state using a basis of Lagrange polynomials and collocate the dynamics at the Legendre-Gauss-Radau points. These methods share the property that they can be written equivalently in either in differential form or in implicit integral form (see the publications page on this website). The continuous-time optimal control problem is then transcribd to a finite-dimensional nonlinear programming problem (NLP) and the NLP is solved using well known software tools. GPOPS has been made possible in large part due to the outstanding work of many people including Dr. Anil V. Rao and his current and former students Dr. Christopher L. Darby, Dr. Divya Garg, Dr. Geoffrey T. Huntington, Dr. David A. Benson, Michael Patterson, Brendan Mahon, and Camila Francolin.
