Title

Some Properties of General Minimization Problems with Constraints

Abstract

The paper studies the existence of solutions and necessary conditions of optimality for a general minimization problem with constraints. Although we focus mainly on the case where the cost functional is locally Lipschitz, a general Palais-Smale condition is proposed and some of its properties are studied. Applications to an optimal control problem and a Lagrange multiplier rule are also given.
