Workshop on Numerical Methods for Optimal Control and Inverse Problems
March 09 - 11, 2015
Garching by Munich
Optimization and inverse problems belong to the fastest growing areas in
applied mathematics in the last decades. On one hand, groundbreaking
achievements in the field of numerical solution techniques for differential and
integral equations have enabled the simulation of highly complex real world
scenarios, thus the logical next step is the optimization of these systems or
the identification of quantities inaccessible to direct observations.
On the other hand, the increasing number of innovative techniques, e.g., in
medical imaging or in industrial processing results in a need for enhanced
optimization and identification methods. Motivated by the obvious close
methodological relation between optimization and identification, the aim of
this workshop is bringing together people developing and analyzing numerical
methods for these kinds of problems. Moreover, we wish to stimulate discussions
on mathematical and computational challenges, which are arising in new
applications ranging from geophysics to medical imaging.
