Abstract : Some new results, related to pursuit problems are presented. The present formulation of the problem is more general than that of (1) in some respects. It allows one to consider magnitude, effort and energy constraints on the control action. The concept of interceptibility of the pursued by the pursuer is introduced. Several necessary and sufficient conditions of interception are then developed. Finally, optimal strategies of pursuit are discussed. (Author)
