A Structure Exploiting Algorithm for Non-Smooth Semi-Linear Elliptic Optimal Control Problems

We investigate optimization problems with a non-smooth partial differential equation as constraint, where the non-smoothness is assumed to be caused by Nemytzkii operators generated by the functions abs, min and max. For the efficient as well as robust solution of such problems, we propose a new optimization method based on abs-linearization, i.e., a special handling … Read more
