Description: BNDSCO–A program for the numerical solution of optimal control problems. BNDSCO is used for the numerical solution of boundary value problems with switching conditions - a class of problems which mainly occurs in connection with optimal control problems. Therefore, the most important necessary conditions for different types of unconstrained and constrained optimal control problems are summarized. The theoretical description of the method, which is essentially an extended version of multiple shooting, is followed by detailed instructions for initializing the input parameters, controlling the output and for the construction of problem-dependent subroutines. Finally, the performance of BNDSCO is demonstrated with a simple example.
