Pursuit, integral constraint, closed convex set.


We study a pursuit differential game problem with finite number of pursuers and one evader on a nonempty closed convex subset of the Hilbert space l2. Players move according to certain first order ordinary differential equations and control functions of the pursuers and evader are subject to integral constraints. Pursuers win the game if the geometric positions of a pursuer and the evader coincide. We formulated and prove theorems that are concern with conditions that ensure win for the pursuers. Consequently, wining strategies of the pursuers are constructed. Furthermore, illustrative example is given to demonstrate the result.
