The Mathematics of Paul Erdos II (Algorithms and Combinatorics 14)

This can be the main entire survey of the mathematical lifetime of the mythical Paul Erd? s, some of the most flexible and prolific mathematicians of our time. For the 1st time, the entire major parts of Erd? s' examine are lined in one venture. as a result of overwhelming reaction from the mathematical group, the venture now occupies over 900 pages, prepared into volumes.

We claim that α1 (·), α2 (·) ∈ K. To see this, observe that − t 0 X−1 (s)N α1 (s) ds = − t 0 X−1 (s)N α∗ (s) ds − ε t 0 X−1 (s)N β(s) ds X−1 (s)N β(s) ds = x0 . = x0 − ε F IF (β(·))=0 Note also α1 (·) ∈ A. Indeed, α1 (s) = α∗ (s) (s ∈ / F) ∗ α1 (s) = α (s) + εβ(s) (s ∈ F ). But on the set F , we have |α∗i (s)| ≤ 1 − ε, and therefore |α1 (s)| ≤ |α∗ (s)| + ε|β(s)| ≤ 1 − ε + ε = 1. Similar considerations apply for α2 . Hence α1 , α2 ∈ K, as claimed above. 3. Finally, observe that α1 = α∗ + εβ, α1 = α∗ α2 = α∗ − εβ, α2 = α∗ .

Then τ∗ T h X −1 τ∗ (s)N α(s) ds ≤ 0 hT X−1 (s)N α∗ (s) ds; 0 and therefore τ∗ hT X−1 (s)N (α∗ (s) − α(s)) ds ≥ 0 0 for all controls α(·) ∈ A. 3. We claim now that the foregoing implies hT X−1 (s)N α∗ (s) = max{hT X−1 (s)N a} a∈A for almost every time s. For suppose not; then there would exist a subset E ⊂ [0, τ ∗ ] of positive measure, such that hT X−1 (s)N α∗ (s) < max{hT X−1 (s)N a} a∈A ˆ as follows: for s ∈ E. Design a new control α(·) ˆ α(s) = α∗ (s) (s ∈ / E) α(s) (s ∈ E) where α(s) is selected so that max{hT X−1 (s)N a} = hT X−1 (s)N α(s).

According to condition (M), for each time t we have (−h1 sin t + h2 cos t)α∗ (t) = max {(−h1 sin t + h2 cos t)a}.
