Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0699.00041.]
Derivation of necessary conditions for optimality in optimal control theory relies on variational calculus of control systems. We provide here such calculus for the semilinear differential inclusion \[ (1)\quad x'\in Ax+F(t,x),\quad x(0)=x_ 0 \] where A is the infinitesimal generator of a \(C_ 0\)-semigroup on a separable Banach space X and F: [0,T]\(\times X\rightsquigarrow X\) is a set-valued map. Such inclusion encompass a number of control systems, including those with state dependent controls. We prove a relaxation theorem and investigate infinitesimal generators of reachable sets and variational inclusions. Results are applied to derive necessary conditions for optimality for some semilinear optimal control problems.
