The interest in convexity in optimal control and the calculus of variations has gone through a revival in the past decade. In this paper, we extend the theory of generalized geometric programming to infinite dimensions in order to derive a dual problem for the convex optimal control problem. This approach transfers explicit constraints in the primal problem to the dual objective functional.
