The behavior of boundary arcs of the attainable set is discussed for a class of differential games, and first-order necessary conditions are obtained. The method is a simple extension of that used by Hestenes (Ref. 1) in relating the behavior of boundary arcs for optimal control problems to the maximum principle.
