Data-driven optimal control with neural network modeling of gradient flows
Is Version Of
Extracting physical laws from observation data is a central challenge in many diverse areas of science and engineering. We propose Optimal Control Neural Networks (OCN) to learn the laws of vector fields in dynamical systems, with no assumption on their analytical form, given data consisting of sampled trajectories. The OCN framework consists of a neural network representation and an optimal control formulation. We provide error bounds for both the solution and the vector field. The bounds are shown to depend on both the training error and the time step between the observation data. We also demonstrate the effectiveness of OCN, as well as its generalization ability, by testing on several canonical systems, including the chaotic Lorenz system.
