  • This paper investigates some regularity properties of the minimum time function for a time-optimal control problem in the space of probability measures endowed with the topology induced by the Wasserstein metric. The main motivation leading us to the generalization of the classical theory to this framework is to model situations in which we have only a probabilistic knowledge of the initial state, as it happens in real settings where noises and measurement errors may occur. We consider a deterministic evolution for a system ruled by a controlled continuity equation and, pursuing the goal of studying a generalization of the classical results for this setting, we prove an attainability result and a locally Lipschitz continuity property for the generalized minimum time function.
