    Dear all,

    I have more or less standard optimal control problem with one twist. There is an additional constraint that the control function q(x)=1 when x>=p where p is a parameter. Does anyone know how to write a Hamiltonian out of this or how to apply Pontryagin principle to this problem.

    To be specific the problem is something like that

    max_{b,q} int (b(x)q(x) dx)
    s.t. V'(x)=q(x)f'(x-b(x))
    q(x)=1 when x>=p.

    As I understand without the last line the problem is pretty much standard: q and b are controls, V is state and f is given. But I have no idea how to write a Hamiltonian with the last line.

    Thanks in advance!
