About these proceedings


Consisting of 16 refereed original contributions, this volume presents a diversified collection of recent results in control of distributed parameter systems. Topics addressed include - optimal control in fluid mechanics - numerical methods for optimal control of partial differential equations - modeling and control of shells - level set methods - mesh adaptation for parameter estimation problems - shape optimization Advanced graduate students and researchers will find the book an excellent guide to the forefront of control and estimation of distributed parameter systems.
