A. A. Ardentov, Yu. L. Sachkov, Solution of Euler’s elastic problem. Automation and Remote Control, Vol. 70, No. 4, pp. 633-643
Euler's problem on stationary configurations of elastic rod with fixed endpoints and
tangents at the endpoints is considered. The corresponding optimal control problem is
reduced to several systems of algebraic equations in Jacobi's functions. An algorithm and
software for solving the optimal control problem are constructed.
