In this paper a family of trustregion interiorpoint SQP algorithms for the solution of a class of minimization problems with nonlinear equality constraints and simple bounds on some of the variables is described and analyzed. Such nonlinear programs arise e.g. from the discretization of optimal control problems. The algorithms treat states and controls as independent variables. They are designed to take advantage of the structure of the problem. In particular they do not rely on matrix factorizations of the linearized constraints, but use solutions of the linearized state equation and the adjoint equation. They are well suited for large scale problems arising from optimal control problems governed by partial differential equations. The algorithms keep strict feasibility with respect to the bound constraints by using an affine scaling method proposed for a different class of problems by Coleman and Li and they exploit trustregion techniques for equalityconstrained optimizatio...

. We investigate local convergence of an SQP method for an optimal control problem governed by the onedimensional heat equation with nonlinear boundary condition. Sufficient conditions for local quadratic convergence of the method based are discussed. AMS subject classification. 49M05, 49M40, 49K24. Keywords. LagrangeNewton method, sequential quadratic programming, optimal control, heat equation, nonlinear boundary condition, control constraints. 1 Introduction The LagrangeNewton method is obtained by applying Newton's method or a generalized version of it to find a stationary point of the Lagrangian function associated to a nonlinear optimization problem. If a constraint qualification and a strong second order sufficiency condition are satisfied, the LagrangeNewton method defines a sequential quadratic programming (SQP) algorithm. It is known since several years that the SQP algorithm exhibits local quadratic convergence in finitedimensional spaces. The method can be easily ...

This paper investigates the local convergence of the LagrangeSQPNewtonmethod applied to an optimal control problem governed by a phase field equation with distributed control. The phase field equation is a system of two semilinear parabolic differential equations. Stability analysis of optimization problems and regularity results for parabolic differential equations are used to proof convergence of the controls with respect to the L 2 (Q) norm and with respect to the L 1 (Q) norm.

Acknowledgments This thesis is a very important milestone in a journey I began more than ten years ago. People too numerous to mention have helped me along the way; a few are singled out here. When I was an undergraduate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, the Mathematics faculty, in particular Professors James Greenberg, So/ren Jensen, and Marc Teboulle, taught me to love applied mathematics; their patience with me was endless and I will always be grateful to them.
