PDE constrained optimization in engineering applications
by Prof. Dr. Michael Hinze, Fachbereich Mathematik, University of Hamburg
Solving optimization problems subject to constraints involving
distributed parameter systems is one of the most challenging problems in
the context of industrial applications. In particular, here the transition from model-based numerical simulations to model-based design and optimal control is crucial.
In this talk we address the basic tasks and discuss the basic concepts of PDE constrained optimization for model applications dealing with
- flow control,
- control of crystal growth, and with
- semiconductor design.
Numerical examples are presented which show the scope of PDE constrained
optimization in engineering applications.
