Summary:Andreas Potschka discusses a direct multiple shooting method for dynamic optimization problems constrained by nonlinear, possibly time-periodic, parabolic partial differential equations. In contrast to indirect methods, this approach automatically computes adjoint derivatives without requiring the user to formulate adjoint equations, which can be time-consuming and error-prone. The author describes and analyzes in detail a globalized inexact Sequential Quadratic Programming method that exploits the mathematical structures of this approach and problem class for fast numerical performance. The book features applications, including results for a real-world chemical engineering separation problem.   Contents ·         Parabolic PDE Constrained Optimization Problems ·         Two-Grid Newton-Picard Inexact SQP ·         Structure Exploiting Solution of QPs ·         Applications and Numerical Results       Target Groups ·         Researchers and students in the fields of mathematics, information systems, and scientific computing ·         Users with PDE constrained optimization problems, in particular in (bio-)chemical engineering   The Author Dr. Andreas Potschka is a postdoctoral researcher in the Simulation and Optimization group of Prof. Dr. Dres. h. c.
