The bang-bang-bang problem revisited
The solution given by Isaacs to the bang-bang-bang problem is shown to be a solution in aweak sense only. A solution in a stronger sense is demonstrated involving the notions of extended closed-loop strategies and of extended value-function. The bang-bang-bang singular surface is interpreted in a new way.
