Inversion in indirect optimal control of multivariable systems
ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations, Tome 14 (2008) no. 2, pp. 294-317.

This paper presents the role of vector relative degree in the formulation of stationarity conditions of optimal control problems for affine control systems. After translating the dynamics into a normal form, we study the hamiltonian structure. Stationarity conditions are rewritten with a limited number of variables. The approach is demonstrated on two and three inputs systems, then, we prove a formal result in the general case. A mechanical system example serves as illustration.
