Abstract : We analyse an optimal control with the following features: the dynamical system is linear, and the dependence upon the control parameter is affine. More precisely we consider $\dot x_\alpha(t) = (G + \alpha(t) F)x_\alpha(t)$, where $G$ and $F$ are $3\times 3$ matrices with some prescribed structure. In the case of constant control $\alpha(t)\equiv \alpha$, we show the existence of an optimal Perron eigenvalue with respect to varying $\alpha$ under some assumptions. Next we investigate the Floquet eigenvalue problem associated to time-periodic controls $\alpha(t)$. Finally we prove the existence of an eigenvalue (in the generalized sense) for the optimal control problem. The proof is based on the results by [Arisawa 1998, Ann. Institut Henri Poincaré] concerning the ergodic problem for Hamilton-Jacobi equations. We discuss the relations between the three eigenvalues. Surprisingly enough, the three eigenvalues appear to be numerically the same.
