Oberwolfach Seminar: Mathematics of PDE Constrained Optimization

- Optimization problems subject to constraints given by partial differential equations (PDEs) with additional constraints on the control and/or state variables belong to the most challenging problem classes in industrial, medical and economical applications, where the transition from model-based numerical simulation to model-based design and optimal control is crucial. In the mathematical treatment of such optimization problems the interaction of mathematical modeling, analysis, optimization techniques and numerical simulation plays a central role. With the seminar we intend to provide a concise introduction to the state of the art in this prosperous research field. The target group of attendees contains researchers on advanced graduate and early post doc level. The topics of the seminar include modeling, analysis, as well as algorithmic, discrete, and adaptive concepts.
The organizers have prepared a

The seminars take place at the
Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach.
The number of participants is restricted to 25.
The Institute covers accommodation and food.
We are pleased that the Carl Friedrich von Siemens Foundation has decided
to support the Oberwolfach Seminars from summer 2008 to summer 2013.
By this support, travel expenses can be reimbursed up to 200 Euro in average per person.
Participants can ask for travel support during their stay in Oberwolfach at the guest office against copy of travel receipts.
