  • parabolic control problem, phase transitions, finite-element approximation


We investigate a general control problem for a class of nonlinear parabolic evolution equations. Applications are related to solid-solid and solid-liquid phase transitions.

We prove compactness of the solution operator, existence of optimal controls and show convergence of the finite-dimensional approximate control problem to the original one.
