Necessary conditions are developed for a general problem in the calculus of variations in which the Lagrangian function, although finite, need not be Lipschitz continuous or convex in the velocity argument. For the first time in such a broadly nonsmooth, nonconvex setting, a full subgradient version of Euler's equation is derived for an arc that furnishes a(More)
The problem considered in the paper can be described as follows. We are given a continuous mapping from one metric space into another which is regular (in the sense of metric regularity or, equivalently, controllability at a linear rate) near a certain point. How small may be an additive perturbation of the mapping which destroys regularity? The paper(More)
