Control of Partial Differential Equations
Co-sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Control and Systems Theory
This minisymposium will focus on the control and optimal control of dynamic physical processes that are well modeled by systems of partial differential equations. The main emphases will be on control problems arising in continuum mechanics and on some computational aspects of distributed parameter control. The speakers will present an overview of current research and methodologies in the theory of control of partial differential equations. They will also discuss specific applications.
