    Abstract: An optimal control problem for a semilinear elliptic equation with infinite order is investigated, where pointwise constraints are given on the control. First order necessary optimality conditions are derived, second-order sufficient optimality condition is established that consider strongly active constraints.

    Keywords: Distributed control, semilinear elliptic equation, infinite order operator, pointwise control constraint, necessary optimality conditions, second order sufficient optimality conditions.
