Semiconcavity results and sensitivity relations for the sub-Riemannian distance

Abstract : Regularity properties are investigated for the value function of the Bolza optimal control problem with affine dynamic and end-point constraints. In the absence of singular geodesics, we prove the local semiconcavity of the sub-Riemannian distance from a compact set Γ ⊂ R n. Such a regularity result was obtained by the second author and L. Rifford in [Semiconcavity results for optimal control problems admitting no singular minimizing controls, Annales de l'IHP Analyse non linéaire 25(4): 2008 ] when Γ is a singleton. Furthermore, we derive sensitivity relations for time optimal control problems with general target sets Γ, that is, without imposing any geometric assumptions on Γ.
