Abstract

A minimization problem for a functional on a convex subsetC of a normed linear space is considered. Under certain hypotheses, optimality in a certain subset ofC implies the validity of first-order necessary optimality conditions for the problem inC. The result is applied to a problem in optimal periodic control of neutral functional differential equations.
