Maximum principle for a size-structured model of forest and carbon sequestration management
The paper analyzes nonlinear optimal control of integral-differential equations that describe the optimal management of a forest taking into account intra-species competition and carbon sequestration. The objective function includes the revenues from timber production, operational expenses, and the net benefits from carbon sequestration. A dual system is derived and a necessary extremum condition is established. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
