Abstract. We characterize functions satisfying a dissipative inequality associated with a stochastic control problem. Such a characterization is provided in terms of an upper generalized Gaussian solution, or a viscosity supersolution to a partial differential equation called Hamilton-Jacobi equation(H-J). Links between upper generalized Gaussian solutions and viscosity supersolutions to Hamilton-Jacobi equation are studied. Finally it shows that generalized Gaussian solutions is identical to viscosity solutions to Hamilton-Jacobi equation.
