Didier Henrion(henrionlaas.fr) Abstract: Infinitedimensional linear conic formulations are described for nonlinear optimal control problems. The primal linear problem consists of finding occupation measures supported on optimal relaxed controlled trajectories, whereas the dual linear problem consists of finding the largest lower bound on the value function of the optimal control problem. Various approximation results relating the original optimal control problem and its linear conic formulations are developed. As illustrated by a couple of simple examples, these results are relevant in the context of finitedimensional semidefinite programming relaxations used to approximate numerically the solutions of the infinitedimensional linear conic problems.
