16.323 Handout #5 Prof. J. P. How April 10, 2008 Due: April 24, 2008 16.323 Homework Assignment #5 1. Suppose that the stock of a species of Fsh increases at a constant rate when they are not harvested. ±ishing regulations set a maximum permitted rate for the harvesting of Fsh, which is proportional to the size of the stock. The system model is then that: x ˙ = x ux 0 u h where x ( t ) is the normalized size of the stock of Fsh, ux is the harvesting rate, and h < 1 is the maximum proportional rate. Suppose that initially x = 1 and that the terminal time T is Fxed. The goal is to determine how to maximize the total number of Fsh caught, so the cost functional is given by T min J uxdt = 0 and obviously x ( T ) is free. (a)
