Optimal Control of Differential Inclusions

This paper is devoted to optimal control of dynamical systems governed by differential inclusions in both frameworks of Lipschitz continuous and discontinuous velocity mappings. The latter framework mostly concerns a new class of optimal control problems described by various versions of the so-called sweeping/Moreau processes that are very challenging mathematically and highly important in applications … Read more

Nonsmooth Lyapunov pairs for infinite-dimensional first-order differential inclusions

The main objective of this paper is to provide new explicit criteria to characterize weak lower semi-continuous Lyapunov pairs or functions associated to first-order differential inclusions in Hilbert spaces. These inclusions are governed by a Lipschitzian perturbation of a maximally monotone operator. The dual criteria we give are expressed by the means of the proximal … Read more
