Practical course: Optimization with PDE constraints (Compact course during the lecture-free period)

The practical course is aimed at students interested in the practical aspects of Optimization with PDE constraints. It is based on the lecture Optimierung mit partiellen Differentialgleichungen (MA4503) and is therefore highly recommended as a conclusion of the session. With the help of a Finite Element solver in MATLAB, we will discretize the problems adressed in the lecture and solve them with appropriate optimization algorithms. Focus will be made on
  • Discretization of elliptic optimal control problems
  • Formulation of discrete optimality conditions (computation of the Lagrangian in the discrete and continuous cases)
  • Computation of linear quadratic problems
  • Computation of non linear problems with first and second order methods
At the end of the course, those methods will be applied on well chosen and interesting example cases. More information can be found in the slides presented during the lecture

The practical course will take place from 4.–7. August (during the lecture free period). Three double sessions will be held each day between 10:00 and 17:00. Organization will be as follows:
  • 10:00–10:45: Plenary session tutorial.
  • 11:00–12:30: Autonomous group work.
  • 14:00–14:45: Plenary session tutorial.
  • 15:00–16:30: Autonomous group work.
The starting time at 10:00 and 14:00 is fixed, the progress of the day can be adapted if necessary. The last day (7. August) will probably be structured slightly differently.
Registration online on Ferienkurse.
