Abstract: In this paper, the authors consider the mean field game with a common noise and allow the state coefficients to vary with the conditional distribution in a nonlinear way. They assume that the cost function satisfies a convexity and a weak monotonicity property. They use the sufficient Pontryagin principle for optimality to transform the mean field control problem into existence and uniqueness of solution of conditional distribution dependent forward-backward stochastic differential equation (FBSDE for short). They prove the existence and uniqueness of solution of the conditional distribution dependent FBSDE when the dependence of the state on the conditional distribution is sufficiently small, or when the convexity parameter of the running cost on the control is sufficiently large. Two different methods are developed. The first method is based on a continuation of the coefficients, which is developed for FBSDE by [Hu, Y. and Peng, S., Solution of forward-backward stochastic differential equations, Probab. Theory Rel., 103(2), 1995,273–283]. They apply the method to conditional distribution dependent FBSDE. The second method is to show the existence result on a small time interval by Banach fixed point theorem and then extend the local solution to the whole time interval.
