  • In this paper, we study the generalized mean-field stochastic control problem when the usual stochastic maximum principle (SMP) is not applicable due to the singularity of the Hamiltonian function. In this case, we derive a second order SMP. We introduce the adjoint process by the generalized mean-field backward stochastic differential equation. The keys in the proofs are the expansion of the cost functional in terms of a perturbation parameter, and the use of the range theorem for vector-valued measures.
