The problem of optimal control with state and control variables is studied. The variables are: a scalar vector 𝑥 and the control 𝑢 ( 𝑡 ) ; these variables are bonded, that is, the right-hand side of the ordinary differential equation contains both state and control variables in a mixed form. For solution of this problem, we used adaptive method and technology of linear programming.
