• Abstract

The equilibrium strategy for $N$-person differential games can be obtained from a min-max problem subject to differential constraints. The differential constraints are treated here by the duality and penalty methods.
We first formulate the duality theory. This involves the introduction of $N+1$ Lagrange multipliers: one for each player and one commonly shared by all players. The primal min-max problem thus results in a dual problem, which is a max-min problem with no differential constraints.
We develop the penalty theory by penalizing $N+1$ differential constraints. We give a convergence proof which generalizes a theorem due to B.T. Polyak.
