An optimization based domain decomposition method for PDEs with random inputs

Computers & Mathematics with Applications

2014 ABSTRACT: An optimization-based domain decomposition method for stochastic elliptic partial differential equations is presented. The main idea of the method is a constrained optimization problem for which the minimization of an appropriate functional forces the solutions on the two subdomains to agree on the interface; the constraints are the stochastic partial differential equations.

A Stochastic Galerkin Method for Stochastic Control Problems

Communications in Computational Physics

2013 ABSTRACT: In an interdisciplinary field on mathematics and physics, we examine a physical problem, fluid flow in porous media, which is represented by a stochastic partial differential equation (SPDE). We first give a priori error estimates for the solutions to an optimization problem constrained by the physical model under lower regularity assumptions than the literature. We then use the concept of Galerkin finite element methods to establish a new numerical algorithm to give approximations for our stochastic optimal physical problem.

Error Estimates of Stochastic Optimal Neumann Boundary Control Problems

SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis

2011 ABSTRACT: We study mathematically and computationally optimal control problems for stochastic partial differential equations with Neumann boundary conditions. The control objective is to minimize the expectation of a cost functional, and the control is of the deterministic, boundary-value type. Mathematically, we prove the existence of an optimal solution and of a Lagrange multiplier ...

A Robin-Robin non-overlapping domain decomposition method for an elliptic boundary control problem

International Journal of Numerical Analysis & Modeling

2011 ABSTRACT: A Robin-Robin non-overlapping domain decomposition method for an optimal boundary control problem associated with an elliptic boundary value problem is presented. The existence of the whole domain and subdomain optimal solutions is proven. The convergence of the subdomain optimal solutions to the whole domain optimal solution is shown. The optimality system is derived and a gradient-type method is defined for finding the optimal solution. A theoretic convergence result for the gradient method is established. The finite element version of the Robin-Robin non-overlapping domain decomposition method is analyzed and some numerical results by the method on both serial and parallel computers (using MPI) are presented.
