Generic Nonoccurrence of the Lavrentiev Phenomenon

Part of the Springer Optimization and Its Applications book series (SOIA, volume 82)


In this chapter we study nonoccurrence of the Lavrentiev phenomenon for a large class of nonconvex optimal control problems. We show that for most problems (in the sense of Baire category) the infimum on the full admissible class of trajectory-control pairs is equal to the infimum on a subclass of trajectory-control pairs with bounded controls.
