State constrained optimal control problems represent severe analytical and numerical challenges. A numerical algorithm based on an active set strategy involving primal as well as dual variables, suggested by a generalized Moreau-Yosida regularization of the state constraint is proposed and analyzed. Numerical examples are included.
This paper deals with a method of tomographic reconstruction of radially symmetric objects from a single radiograph, in order to study the behavior of shocked material. The usual tomographic reconstruction algorithms such as generalized inverse or filtered back-projection cannot be applied here because data are very noisy and the inverse problem associated… (More)
We consider an optimal control problem where the state satisfies a bilateral elliptic varia-tional inequality and the control functions are the upper and lower obstacles. We seek a state that is close to a desired profile and the H 2 norms of the obstacles are not too large. Existence results are given and an optimality system is derived. A particular case… (More)
The aim of this paper is to construct a model which decomposes a 3D image into two components: the first one containing the geometrical structure of the image, the second one containing the noise. The proposed method is based on a second order variational model and an undecimated wavelet thresholding operator. The numerical implementation is described, and… (More)
This paper presents a Modified Variational Splines Fitting (MVSF) algorithm for surface reconstruction using thin plate splines on scattered patches or points of originally smooth surfaces. In particular, a more accurate derivation of the discrete equations for the energy corresponding to the thin plate model is introduced. The results obtained on simulated… (More)
