Second-order sufficient conditions for strong solutions to optimal control problems
J. Frederic Bonnans(frederic.bonnansinria.fr)
Abstract: In this report, given a reference feasible trajectory of an optimal control problem, we say that the quadratic growth property for bounded strong solutions holds if the cost function of the problem has a quadratic growth over the set of feasible trajectories with a bounded control and with a state variable sufficiently close to the reference state variable. Our sufficient second-order optimality conditions in Pontryagin form ensure this property and ensure a fortiori that the reference trajectory is a bounded strong solution. Our proof relies on a decomposition principle, which is a particular second-order expansion of the Lagrangian of the problem.
Keywords: Optimal control; second-order sufficient conditions; quadratic growth; bounded strong solutions; Pontryagin multipliers; pure state and mixed control-state constraints; decomposition principle.
