Prof. Dr. Volkwein - Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) for Partial Differential Equations; Application to PDE-Constrained Optimization

Department of Mathematics and Statistics
University of Konstanz


In the first part of the course POD model reduction is introduced. The numerical computation of a POD basis is discussed and a-priori error analysis is presented. Throughout, numerical will illustrate the theoretical results and discussions. In the second part of the course POD is applied to solve optimal control problems governed by partial differential equations. To ensure sufficiently accurate solutions a-posteriori error analysis as well as POD basis adaption is utilized.
