Abstract

An optimal control problem for the dynamic enforcement (crackdown) of dealers on a pure seller's market for illicit drugs is explored. Theorems on existence and uniqueness of the optimal synthesis are proved. Using a technique of resolution of singularities for degenerate differential equations, we design analytically an optimal enforcement policy.
