Optimal control of partial differential equations

Optimal control of a semilinear parabolic equation with singular arcs

Participant : Frédéric Bonnans.

This paper, published as Inria report 8099 [25] , develops a theory of singular arc, and the corresponding second order necessary and sufficient conditions, for the optimal control of a semilinear parabolic equation with scalar control applied on the r.h.s. We obtain in particular an extension of Kelley's condition, and the characterization of a quadratic growth property for a weak norm.
