An algebraic multigrid method (AMG) for solving convection-diffusion optimality systems is presented. Results of numerical experiments demonstrate robustness of the AMG scheme with respect to changes of the weight of the cost of the control and show that the computational performance of the proposed AMG scheme is comparable to that of AMG applied to single scalar equations.
