Deterministic optimal control problem.

e assume everywhere that all the functions are regular enough to differentiate and solutions of ODEs exist.


Assume existence of solution MATH , MATH of the ODE MATH for some function MATH and a family of functions MATH , MATH . The function MATH satisfies MATH


We use the short notation MATH , $s\geq t$ . By definition of $u$ , MATH Note that MATH . MATH Hence, MATH


Assume that function MATH satisfies the relationships MATH and function MATH is defined by MATH for a fixed $\alpha$ .

Then MATH for any $t$ .


We calculate MATH MATH MATH Hence, MATH or MATH Note that MATH . Hence, MATH
