Generalized Maximum Principle in Optimal Control
- 2 Downloads
The concept of a local infimum for an optimal control problem is introduced, and necessary conditions for it are formulated in the form of a family of “maximum principles.” If the infimum coincides with a strong minimum, then this family contains the classical Pontryagin maximum principle. Examples are given to show that the obtained necessary conditions strengthen and generalize previously known results.
