The International Workshop on Nonlinear Analysis and Optimization Theory taking place in Porto, Portugal, from April 19 to 21, 2017 is dedicated to the 60th birthday of Aram Arutyunov, Professor at Peoples' Friendship University of Russia and Moscow State University.
This workshop brings together a significant number of researchers with extremely relevant contributions to the various areas addressed in the workshop as well as many postgraduate students and researchers in Mathematics and other fields for which mathematical methods are relevant in their research. The members of the International Program Committee are speakers at the Workshop.
The aim is not only to present and discuss research avenues in the very dynamic fields of Nonlinear Analysis and Optimization leading to more valuable and beautifully flourishing Mathematics, but also to share high standard values that this research community has been setting.
A large number of contributed talks address numerous issues in widely diversified classes of problems on the themes of the workshop, which certainly encompass the three main large group of topics in which Professor Aram Arutyunov provided the most significant contributions:
• Optimal Control – Pontryagin Maximum Principle, State and Mixed Constraints, Degeneracy Phenomena, Controllability Conditions, Generalized Controls, Impulsive Control Problems, Second-order Optimality Conditions;
• Abnormal Problems – Second-order Optimality Conditions in Abnormal Minimizers, Inverse and Implicit Function Theorems in Abnormal Points; and
• Nonlinear Analysis – Quadratic Maps, Coincidence Points of Maps, Covering Properties.
