Functional Description

Hampath is an open-source software developed to solve optimal control problems by coupling shooting and homotopy methods. More generally, it can be used to solve general Hamiltonian boudary value problems. It also implements an efficient computation of Jacobi fields (allowing in particular second order optimality condition checks) based on the repeated use of automatic differentiation.
