Control as Programming in General Normed Linear Spaces
The theory of necessary conditions for optimal control problems can be presented in various forms. In these lectures we shall present a relatively recent form of that theory in which optimal control problems are considered as mathematical programming problems in infinite dimensional spaces. In Section I we shall define a very general mathematical programming problem and in Theorem I we shall state a necessary condition for that problem, A suitable background and appropriate references for Section I can be found in Halkin and Neustadt. A simple proof of Theorem I is given in Halkin. In Section II we shall study the dynamics of a control problem and in Theorem II we shall prove that for a general class of control problems the assumptions of Theorem I are satisfied.
