Optimal control with state-space constraint. I. (English) Zbl 0597.49023

The problem studied is the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation associated to a deterministic optimal control problem with state space constraints. The principal results obtained are the following: 1) The optimal value function is the unique function that is a viscosity subsolution in the open domain, and a viscosity supersolution in the closed domain. 2) The optimal value function is bounded and uniformly continuous in the closed domain.
