Kurzfassung englisch:
This paper considers a linear-quadratic optimal control problem where the control function appears linearly and takes values in a hypercube. It is assumed that the optimal controls are of purely bang-bang type and that the switching function, associated with the problem, exhibits a suitable growth around its zeros. The authors introduce a scheme for the discretization of the problem that doubles the rate of convergence of the Euler´s scheme. The proof of the accuracy estimate employs some recently obtained results concerning the stability of the optimal solutions with respect to disturbances.
