An Obstacle Control Problem with a Source Term

  title={An Obstacle Control Problem with a Source Term},
  author={David R Adams},
An optimal control problem for an elliptic variational inequality with a source term is considered. The obstacle is the control, and the goal is to keep the solution of the variational inequality close to the desired pro le while the H norm of the obstacle is not too large. The addition of the source term strongly a ects the needed compactness result for the existence of a minimizer.
