Abstract |
In this thesis, a wavelet method for the numerical solution of an optimal control
problem constrained by a linear elliptic partial differential equation is developed.
The particular challenge here lies in considering and combining two areas of
research, namely the efficient solution of an elliptic partial differential
equation (shortly PDE) on the one hand and an optimisation problem specified
by an objective functional and PDE constraints on the other. To cope with the finite amount of computer memory, the problem needs to be discretised. Already for the numerical solution of a single PDE, this gives rise to a large and ill-conditioned sparse linear system of equations, which necessitates the use of iterative solvers combined with suitable preconditioning techniques. The reformulation of the control problem in terms of a Lagrangian functional leads to a coupled system of PDEs. Its iterative solution requires repeated solutions of a single PDE in inner loops, such that the computation time is multiplied accordingly. Moreover, the introduction of control and adjoint variables leads to a significant increase of the memory requirements. more... |
