Paper Abstract

A direct comparison between continuous and discrete forms of analysis of control and stability is investigated theoretically and numerically. We demonstrate that the continuous method provides a more energy-efficient means of controlling the switching of a periodically-driven class-B laser between its stable and unstable pulsing regimes. We provide insight into this result using the close correspondence that exists between the problems of energy-optimal control and the stability of a steady state.
