We describe precisely, under generic conditions, the contact of
the accessibility set at time T with an abnormal direction,
first for a single-input affine control system with constraint on
the control, and then as an
application for a sub-Riemannian system of rank 2. As a
consequence we obtain in sub-Riemannian geometry a new
splitting-up of the sphere near an abnormal minimizer γ
into two sectors, bordered by the first Pontryagin's cone along
γ, called the L∞-sector and the
L2-sector.
Moreover we find again necessary and sufficient conditions of
optimality of an abnormal trajectory for such systems,
for any optimization problem.
