Optimal impulse control for impulsive systems in Banach spaces. (English) Zbl 0959.49023

An impulse control system allows Dirac deltas (in time) in the control. The (more general) model used in this paper is a semilinear evolution equation \[ dy(t) = Ay(t) dt + f(y(t)) dt + g(y(t)) dv(t) , \quad y(0) = y_0 \tag{1} \] which holds in an interval \([0, T]\) minus a finite set of jumps \(\{t_1, t_2, \dots, t_n\} \subset (0, T).\) At the jumps, we have a condition \(y(t_k + 0) - y(t_k) = F_k(y(t_k)),\) where each \(F_k\) is a nonlinear operator. \(A\) is an infinitesimal generator and the function \(v(t)\) is of bounded variation in \(0 \leq t \leq T.\) The author discusses the theory of (1), sets up a general optimization problem of Bolza type for a suitable class of controls \(v(t),\) derives a necessary optimality condition and outlines an algorithm for computation of the optimal controls based on this condition.
