We discuss the problem of optimal control theory given by second order sweeping processes with discrete and differential inclusions. The main problem is to derive sufficient optimality conditions for second-order sweeping processes with differential inclusions. By using first and second order difference operators in a continuous problem we associate the second order sweeping processes with a discrete-approximate problem. On the basis of the discretization method in the form of Euler-Lagrange inclusions, optimality conditions for discrete approximate inclusions and transversality conditions are obtained. The establishment of Euler-Lagrange type adjoint inclusions is based on the presence of equivalence relations for locally adjoint mappings. To demonstrate the results obtained, a second-order sweeping process with a "linear" differential inclusion is considered.

Keywords: Euler-Lagrange inclusions, adjoint mappings, set-valued map, approximation, second order, sweeping, transversality.
