Abstract:

The paper considers a sufficient condition for the existence of an admissible control which transfers the state of a system from an initial to a final value subjected to a constraint. The concept of the modified adjoint operator is introduced such that the control satisfies the two-point boundary value problem and is proportional to the modified adjoint operator. The applicability of the sufficient condition is compared with that of the necessary and sufficient condition by means of several examples. Author
