Abstract

We address the problem of obtaining well-defined criteria for multiple criteria optimal control problems. Necessary and sufficient conditions for an objective functional to be nonessential are proved. The results provide effective tools for determining nonessential objectives in multiobjective optimal control problems.

Keywords

multiobjective optimal control problem, Pareto optimal solution, essential/nonessential functionals.
