In this paper, an optimal control problem was taken up for a stationary equation of quasi optic. For the stationary equation of quasi optic, at first judgment relating to the existence and uniqueness of a boundary value problem was given. By using this judgment, the existence and uniqueness of the optimal control problem solutions were proved. Then we state a necessary condition to an optimal solution. We proved differentiability of a functional and obtained a formula for its gradient. By using this formula, the necessary condition for solvability of the problem is stated as the variational principle.
