We consider control-constrained linear-quadratic optimal control problems on evolving hypersurfaces in R. In order to formulate well-posed problems, we prove existence and uniqueness of weak solutions for the state equation, in the sense of vector-valued distributions. We then carry out and prove convergence of the variational discretization of a distributed optimal control problem. In the process, we investigate the convergence of a fully discrete approximation of the state equation, and… CONTINUE READING
