Víctor Hernández-Santamaría earned his Ph.D. degree in the department of automatic control in CINVESTAV (Mexico), under the supervision of Luz de Teresa (Instituto de Matemáticas, UNAM, México) and Alexander Poznyak (CINVESTAV). His research interests are related to control problems for coupled parabolic equations, especially, those arising in the insensitizing control and hierarchic control problems, both from a theoretical and numerical point of view. He holded a Postdoctoral position at the ERC DyCon Advanced Grant project under the supervision of Prof. Enrique Zuazua.
In this tutorial, we show how to use the C++ library OpenFOAM (Open Field Operation and Manipulation) in order to solve control problems for partial differential equations (PDE).
In this work, we address the optimal control of parameter-dependent systems.
A finite element approximation of the one-dimensional fractional Poisson equation with applications to numerical control
Turnpike theory and greedy algorithms, applied to the steady-state elliptic control problem, are combined to obtain a greedy approximation of parabolic optimal control problems, independent of the initial data
