Optimization and Optimal Control of Incompressible Flows

The speakers will address various analytical and computational aspects of optimization and optimal control problems for unsteady, viscous incompressible flows. These problems have a wide range of engineering and technological applications. In recent years, great progress has been made in the area of optimization and optimal control of incompressible flows. As a result, it is possible to apply optimization and optimal control techniques to practical and complicated engineering designs and sophisticated realtime control systems. The speakers will discuss the study of the sensitivity derivatives of discretized shape optimization problems, modeling, analysis and computational techniques for boundary optimal control, optimization and optimal control of vortex dominated flows, and the long time behaviors and numerical approximations of solutions of piecewise (in time) optimal control problems.
