Multiobjective Optimal Control Problems

  • Christiane Tammer
Part of the International Series of Numerical Mathematics book series (ISNM, volume 124)


From an Ekeland-type variational principle for vector optimization problems we derive an e-minimum principle in the sense of Pontrjagin for suboptimal controls using classical results for differential equations.
