Abstract : In this paper, the optimal control problem of singular Boolean control networks is considered via semi-tensor product. Using an analogous needle variation, for multi-input case, a necessary condition for the existence of optimal control is provided based on the algebraic form of singular Boolean control networks, and the result is specialized to the single-input case. Then, an algorithm is presented to calculate an optimal control. Illustrative examples, including the single-input case, are given to show the feasibility of the theoretical results.
