Characterization of barriers of differential games

Abstract : In pursuit-evasion games, when a barrier occurs, splitting the state space into capture and evasion areas, in order to characterize this manifold, the study of the minimum time function requires discontinuous generalized solutions of the Isaacs equation. Thanks to the minimal oriented distance from the target, we obtain a characterization by approximation with continuous functions. The barrier is characterized by the largest upper semicontinuous viscosity subsolution of a variational inequality. This result extends the Isaacs semipermeability property.
