Contents
The description of the module (5513) can be found here. We will discuss questions arising in the numerical analysis of optimal control problems subject to (linear and possibly semilinear) elliptic partial differential equations and additional inequality constraints on the control and/or the state. Our main focus is on deriving a priori error estimates for the finite element discretization of such problems. Depending on the participants' background in partial differential equations, optimal control theory, and numerical analysis of PDEs, we will develop the theoretical background such as existence and regularity of optimal solutions, necessary and sufficient optimality conditions, and in the case of pointwise state constraints also regularization strategies. We will discuss different discretization strategies and derive rates of convergence for the discrete optimal controls. In addition to the theoretical part (consisting of a combined lecture/exercise class) there will be practical programming exercises in Matlab.
