Notes 
Optimal control problem, Vehicle Dynamics & Optimization Lab, UF
Anil Rao and Begum Senses, University of Florida
http://vdol.mae.ufl.edu
This matrix arises from an optimal control problem described below.
Each optimal control problem gives rise to a sequence of matrices of
different sizes when they are being solved inside GPOPS, an optimal
control solver created by Anil Rao, Begum Senses, and others at in VDOL
lab at the University of Florida. This is one of the matrices in one
of these problems. The matrix is symmetric indefinite.
Rao, Senses, and Davis have created a graph coarsening strategy
that matches pairs of nodes. The mapping is given for this matrix,
where map(i)=k means that node i in the original graph is mapped to
node k in the smaller graph. map(i)=map(j)=k means that both nodes
i and j are mapped to the same node k, and thus nodes i and j have
been merged.
This matrix consists of a set of nodes (rows/columns) and the
names of these rows/cols are given
Anil Rao, Begum Sense, and Tim Davis, 2015.
VDOL/spaceShuttleEntry
Space shuttle launch vehicle reentry optimal control problem is taken
from Ref.~\cite{betts2010practical}. The goal of the optimal control
problem is to determine the state and the control that maximize the
cross range (maximize the final latitude) during the atmospheric
entry of a reusable launch vehicle. State of the system is defined by
the position, velocity, and the orientation of the space shuttle and
the control of the system is the angle of attack and the bank angle
of the space shuttle. The specified accuracy tolerance of $10^{8}$
were satisfied after two mesh iterations. As the mesh refinement
proceeds, the size of the KKT matrices increases from 560 to 2450.
