ec 2 00 8 Necessary and sufficient optimality conditions for relaxed and strict control problems of backward systems

We consider a stochastic control problem where the set of strict (classical) controls is not necessarily convex, and the system is governed by a nonlinear backward stochastic differential equation. By introducing a new approach, we establish necessary as well as sufficient conditions of optimality for two models. The first concerns the relaxed controls, who… (More)
