We present a boundary optimal control approach for a Bernoulli free boundary problem. Our control objective consists in tracking a free boundary to an a priori given desired one. An appropriate cost functional is chosen for this purpose and its gradient is analytically derived. The resulting optimality conditions are discretized and the minimization problem(More)
