The new release 3.0 of the Matlab package GloptiPoly is introduced
through an application to a class of nonlinear optimal control problems
for which the data (differential equations, state and control constraints,
cost) are multivariate polynomials. GloptiPoly 3.0 is aimed at solving
generalized moment problems. It allows to manipulate several measures and define linear decision problems on their moments. The problems can then be solved numerically with any semidefinite programming solver interfaced with YALMIP.
