Optimization problems for nonstationary wave processes

  • G. A. Atanov
  • V. K. Tolstykh


We give a general formulation of the optimization problem for nonstationary hyperbolic systems. Gradient algorithms are used for a directed numerical search. The adjoint problem is obtained in general form in order to compute the gradient. We prove that the types and characteristics of the direct and adjoint problems are the same. We recommend the use of identical total count difference schemes to solve both problems.
