We study a HamiltonJacobi equation in infinite dimensions arising in optimal control theory for problems involving both exit times and statespace constraints. The corresponding boundary conditions for the HamiltonJacobi equation, of mixed nature, have been derived and investigated in [19], [2], [5], and [15] in the finitedimensional case. We obtain a uniqueness result for viscosity solutions of such a problem and then prove the existence of a solution by showing that the value function is continuous.
