Optimal control theory has numerous applications in both science and engineering. This book presents basic concepts and principles of mathematical programming in terms of set-valued analysis and develops a comprehensive optimality theory of problems described by ordinary and partial differential inclusions. In addition to including well recognized results of variational analysis and optimization, the book includes a number of new and important ones. It also includes practical examples.
