Proximal Subdifferential of the Bilateral Minimal Time Function and some Regularity Applications
Dept. of Computer Science and Mathematics, Lebanese American University, Byblos Campus -- P.O. Box 36, Byblos, Lebanon
We derive a formula for the proximal subdifferential of the bilateral minimal time function in the linear case. As a consequence, we prove some new regularity properties for this function, essentially, we provide suitable weak controllability assumption under which its epigraph is locally φ0-convex.
Keywords: Bilateral and unilateral minimal time function, linear control system, phi-convexity, proximal analysis, nonsmooth analysis.
