A Second Order Sufficient Condition for Optimality in Nonlinear Control — the Conjugate Point Approach
Second order optimality conditions in terms of conjugate points are stated. A finite number of discontinuities of optimal control is admitted. The aim of the article is to show that the classical approach to second order optimality conditions may also be successful.
