Abstract: In this paper a semiconcavity result is obtained for the value function of an optimal exit time problem. The related state equation is of general form
$\dot y(t)=f(y(t),u(t))$, $y(t)\in\mathbb R^n$, $u(t)\in U\subset \mathbb R^m$.
However, suitable assumptions are needed relating $f$
with the running and exit costs.
Keywords: Optimal control problems, exit time problems, dynamic programming, optimality conditions, semiconcavity.
