Abstract : Cooperative differential games having convex control sets are investigated. Two criteria are given for the utility of analyzing Pareto-optimal solutions of such games. The criteria are shown to determine whether a Pareto-optimal control policy belongs to the boundary of the control set or to the interior. A condition which is necessary for Pareto-optimality in such games is employed to obtain the results. An example is given to demonstrate that the results do not necessarily apply to games having non-convex control sets. (Author)
