Summary

In this paper we consider the question of existence of optimal controls for a class of systems governed by second order parabolic partial delay-differential equations with first boundary conditions and with controls appearing in the coefficients. In Theorems2.2 and2.3 we present existence and uniqueness of solutions of the first boundary problems. In Theorems3.1 and3.2 we prove that whenever the coefficients of the system converge in the w*-topology (L1 topology on L) the corresponding solutions converge weakly in an appropriate Sobolev space. Using these basic results we present two theorems (Theorems4.1 and4.2) on the existence of optimal controls.
