Research Group on PDE-Constrained Optimization

Professor
Prof. Dr. Volker Schulz

Research
The mission of the group is the mathematical investigation and development of numerical methods for the solution of optimization and inverse problems for discretized models derived from partial differential equations. In particular, these problems lead to large-scale nonlinear optimization problems, where the key methods being investigated are simultaneous optimization methods, partially reduced SQP methods and multigrid optimization methods. A particular emphasis in this field of research lies on real applications, examples of which are:

  • Optimal control in chemical engineering
  • Optimal structural design and topology optimization
  • Shape optimization
  • Inverse problems in groundwater flow
  • Parameter estimation and experimental design in rheology
