Abstract:

This article deals with necessary conditions for problems in the calculus of variations that incorporate inequality constraints of the form fx, x or 0. It is shown that by avoiding this transition and treating these problems directly, the classical multiplier rule can be obtained under significantly weaker regularity and rank hypotheses.
