The description of the module (4503) can be found here.
Many areas of science and engineering involve optimal control of processes that are modelled through partial differential equations. In this course we will cover theoretical foundations and numerical methods for solving such optimization problems. The discussed methods can be used for example for optimally controlling heating-up or cooling-down processes, fluids, or chemical reactions.

The exam will take place on 17th of July, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm in the Interimshörsaal 2. You may bring one sheet of A4 size paper with hand-written notes (two-sided), but no other resources such as phones, calculators, books, and the like. Make sure to bring your German national ID card/passport and student ID card.
Programming Exercises
Please note that during the semester break we offer an additional lab course for everyone interested in the practical aspects of optimiziation with PDEs.
