Necessary Conditions in Mathematical Programming and Optimal Control Theory

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 105)


In these lectures I will present a theory of necessary conditions for nonlinear optimizations problems in infinite-dimensional spaces and I will apply the results of the theory to the optimal control of systems described by families of nonlinear ordinary differential equations.
