We’re starting an online Dynamic Optimization Course ( this week with content on modeling, estimation, and optimal control. Course Intro:  I’ll post updates and announcements to the Discussion Group (!forum/apmonitor) about new content as we add it throughout the course. There are two initial assignments including:


·         Skydiver simulation at

·         Reservoir simulation at


There are video lectures for each class period and exercises at the end of each page. Each exercise requires about 1-2 hours to complete. We’ll continue until June 17-18 with final project presentations.
