Numerical Solution of Optimal Control Problems (Invited Minisymposium)

Optimal control problems occur in several areas of engineering
and economics. Their numerical solution is complicated by problems
like boundary value problems with partial differential equations,
nonsmooth solutions of differential equations due to state
constraints or design of optimal controllers. The size and the
complexity of these problems require special optimization
algorithms. This is the main topic that all speakers will address.
