Editorial Reviews

With an emphasis on problems governed by partial differential equations, engineers and mathematicians engaged in research on control and optimization discuss analyses, algorithms, implementations, and applications. Among the 17 papers are considerations of shape optimization in one shot, the application of sparse least squares in aerospace design problems, uniformly scalar spline approximations for scalar delay problems, the optimal control of thermally coupled Navier-Stokes equations, and the formation theory of active metals. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

"Those interested in multidisciplinary or cross-disciplinary design and control problems will find the book a unique source of ideas."
