Control problems under conditions of uncertainty are considered. Trajectories of controlled systems are assumed to be describable with the aid of ordinary differential equations. The problem is formulated in terms of differential games. The existence of equilibrium points is considered. Necessary and sufficient conditions for a piecewise smoothed potential of a differential game are derived. These conditions are in force even for singular surfaces. Moreover, the method for solving a differential game with the aid of a sequence of programming problems is developed. This approach leads to a new classification of differential games.
