Abstract : We investigate convex constrained nonlinear optimization problems and optimal control with convex state constraints in the light of the so-called Legendre transform. We use this change of coordinate to propose a gradient-like algorithm for mathematical programs, which can be seen as a search method along geodesics. We also use the Legendre transform to study the value function of a state constrained Mayer problem and we show that it can be characterized as the unique viscosity solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation.
