Room: Capitol South
The optimal control of partial differential equations is a challenging area of optimization, where the theory of PDEs, advanced techniques for their numerical solution, modern tools of functional analysis and large-scale optimization methods are merged. This field is important for an increasing number of applications. The speakers in this minisymposium will report on different optimal control problems for semilinear and nonlinear equations of elliptic and parabolic type. They will emphasize several important issues: fast solution techniques, application of interior point methods, primal-dual strategies for state constraints, theoretical aspects of numerical approximation, and modelling of applied control problems. They will also present industrial applications.
