Introduction into Implementation of Optimization problems with PDEs

The practical course is aimed at students interested in the practical aspects of Optimization with PDE constraints. It is based on the lecture Moderne Methoden der Nichtlinearen Optimierung: Finite-Elemente-Methoden für PDE-beschränkte Optimalsteuerungsprobleme (MA4503/MA4505) 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
