The focus of this project is the study of 2nd order optimality conditions in
calculus of variations and optimal control problems on time scales.
These conditions are based on the nonnegativity (i.e. necessary optimality
conditions) and the positivity or coercivity (i.e. sufficient optimality
conditions) of the corresponding quadratic functionals of the second variation.
In particular, we will study their characterizations in terms of conjugate and
coupled points, and the solvability of the associated Jacobi and Riccati
dynamic equations.
