Consider the following optimal control problem
$$\overset{\centerdot }{\mathop{x}}\,=uQ(x)$$
where x ∈ R + n , i.e. x = (x 1 , ..., x n ), x i < 0; u- is n-dimensional control vector belonging to the simplex: u i ≥ 0, \( \sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {{u_i} = 1} \) for any 1 ≤ i ≤ n. Q is a scalar function: Q(x) ≠ 0 in R + n , Q ∈ C 2 (R + n ). Our goal is to minimize the functional
$$ R(x(T),T) $$
where T is the smallest value of t such that (x(t),t) ∈ M, M being a given set: M (x(t)), t) = 0 (called the terminal set). Here R and M are scalar functions: R, M ∈ C1(R + n + 1 ). For example, in the time optimal problem of transferring the point from the state (x 0, t 0) to the terminal set M(x) = 0 we have to minimize R(x(T), T) = T - t 0
