Space-time finite element methods for parabolic distributed optimal control problems

We present a method for the numerical approximation of distributed optimal control problems constrained by parabolic partial differential equations. We complement the first-order optimality condition

Least-squares finite elements for distributed optimal control problems

The proposed method simultaneously solves the state and adjoint equations and is inf – sup stable for any choice of conforming discretization spaces, and a reliable and efficient a posteriori error estimator is derived for problems where box constraints are imposed on the control.

Stability of Galerkin discretizations of a mixed space–time variational formulation of parabolic evolution equations

Galerkin discretizations of a new well-posed mixed space-time variational formulation of parabolic PDEs are analyzed and the resulting Galerkin operators are shown to be uniformly stable.

Efficient space‐time adaptivity for parabolic evolution equations using wavelets in time and finite elements in space
