KurzbeschreibungIn this course we present theoretical and practical aspects of finite element methods applied to discretizations of PDE-constrained optimization problems.
InhaltWe discuss different discretization concepts carefully taking
into account the difference between discretization of a single equation
and the discretization of an optimization problem. We derive a priori
error estimates for different situations including problems with
inequality constraints as well as problems governed by semilinear PDEs.
Moreover we discuss a posteriori error estimates and adaptive mesh
refinement algorithms for PDE-constrained optimization. Last but not
least, we give an overview of current research topics in this area.
