### A weak regularity theorem for real analytic optimal control problems.

We consider real analytic finite-dimensional control problems with a scalar input that enters linearly in the evolution equations. We prove that, whenever it is possible to steer a state x to another state y by means of a measurable control, then it is possible to steer x to y by means of a control that has an extra regularity property, namely, that of being analytic on an open dense subset of its interval of definition. Since open dense sets can have very small measure, this is a very weak property....
