We investigate the infinite horizon problem in optimal control with a general—not necessarily discounted—running cost. The dynamic programming approach associates to it the value function V that may be discontinuous and may take infinite values. In general, the first order necessary optimality conditions have the form of a maximum principle, that may be abnormal and does not include any transversality condition. We show that a normal maximum principle and a sensitivity relation involving the Fr… CONTINUE READING
