Optimization in Partial Differential Equations
(Invited minisymposium)

Optimization and control problems governed by nonlinear partial differential equations are important for many applications, for instance in phase transitions, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and diffusion processes. They have attracted increasing attention in the past years. In particular, first order necessary and second order sufficient optimality conditions were extended to this class of problems. Paralleling these investigations, new numerical methods were developed. Nonconvexity and the large dimension of the discretized problems are the main features making their numerical treatment a great challenge. This minisymposium will focus on numerical methods for optimization problems governed by partial differential equations of parabolic and elliptic type.
