Workshop on Optimization with PDE constraints
Venue : TIFR CAM, Bangalore Date : 25 November - 6 December, 2013
This workshop will provide an introduction to topics in optimization of problems governed by partial differential equations including those involving shape optimization problems. Theoretical and numerical aspects of formulating and solving such problems will be taught.
- Basics of optimization theory
- Introduction to PDE-constrained otpimization
- Algorithmic differentiation
- Discretization aspects: A priori error analysis, adaptive FEM
- Multigrid methods in optimization
- One shot optimization
- Aerodynamic Shape optimization
