PDE Seminar

Optimization problems with partial differential equation (PDE) constraints is a fast growing mathematical field that has a wide range of applications, such as shape optimization, parameter estimation, image denoising, fluid flow control, vascular surgery, crystal growths, etc. The field of PDE constrained optimization requires expertise in several branches of mathematics: PDEs, continuous and discrete optimization, linear and non-linear functional analysis, numerical analysis, and scientific computing. The research in this field offers a wide variety of exciting problems, challenging both computationally and analytically.

The aim of this series is to bring together several of our faculty and students and learn new topics on the subjects mentioned above, which are usually not covered in a regular course.

Questions and suggestions on possible new topics should be addressed to H. Antil. Faculty members involved are: H. Antil, M. Emelianenko, I. Griva, M. Holzer, E. Sander, T. Wanner.

Everyone is Welcome to Attend!

We meey once a week on Mondays, 10:00am - 11:00pm in Exporatory Hall, Room 4106.
