Upper semicontinuity of the solution map to a parametric boundary optimal control problem with unbounded constraint sets

Abstract

The paper studies the solution stability of a parametric control problem governed by semilinear elliptic equations with a mixed state-control constraint, where the objective function is nonconvex and the admissible set is unbounded. We show that under certain conditions, the solution set is upper semicontinuous and continuous with respect to parameters.
