Abstract
The analysis and boundary optimal control of the nonlinear transport of gas on a network of pipelines is considered. The evolution of the gas distribution on a given pipe is modeled by an isothermal semilinear compressible Euler system in one space dimension. On the network, solutions satisfying (at nodes) the Kirchhoff flux continuity conditions are shown to exist in a neighborhood of an equilibrium state. The associated nonlinear optimization problem then aims at steering such dynamics to a given target distribution by means of suitable (network) boundary controls while keeping the distribution within given (state) constraints. The existence of local optimal controls is established and a corresponding KarushKuhnTucker (KKT) stationarity system with an almost surely nonsingular Lagrange multiplier is derived.

Abstract
We propose and analyze a numerical algorithm for solving a class of optimal control problems for learninginformed semilinear partial differential equations. The latter is a class of PDEs with constituents that are in principle unknown and are approximated by nonsmooth ReLU neural networks. We first show that a direct smoothing of the ReLU network with the aim to make use of classical numerical solvers can have certain disadvantages, namely potentially introducing multiple solutions for the corresponding state equation. This motivates us to devise a numerical algorithm that treats directly the nonsmooth optimal control problem, by employing a descent algorithm inspired by a bundlefree method. Several numerical examples are provided and the efficiency of the algorithm is shown.

Abstract
In this paper, we present a stochastic augmented Lagrangian approach on (possibly infinitedimensional) Riemannian manifolds to solve stochastic optimization problems with a finite number of deterministic constraints. We investigate the convergence of the method, which is based on a stochastic approximation approach with random stopping combined with an iterative procedure for updating Lagrange multipliers. The algorithm is applied to a multishape optimization problem with geometric constraints and demonstrated numerically.

Abstract
In this paper, we discuss optimality conditions for optimization problems subject to random state constraints, which are modeled in probabilistic or almost sure form. While the latter can be understood as the limiting case of the former, the derivation of optimality conditions requires substantially different approaches. We apply them to a linear elliptic partial differential equation (PDE) with random inputs. In the probabilistic case, we rely on the sphericalradial decomposition of Gaussian random vectors in order to formulate fully explicit optimality conditions involving a spherical integral. In the almost sure case, we derive optimality conditions and compare them to a model based on robust constraints with respect to the (compact) support of the given distribution.

Abstract
A novel generalization of Γconvergence applicable to a class of equilibrium problems is studied. After the introduction of the latter, a variety of its applications is discussed. The existence of equilibria with emphasis on Nash equilibrium problems is investigated. Subsequently, our Γconvergence notion for equilibrium problems, generalizing the existing one from optimization, is introduced and discussed. The work ends with its application to a class of penalized generalized Nash equilibrium problems and quasivariational inequalities.

Abstract
We develop a functional framework suitable for the treatment of partial differential equations and variational problems on evolving families of Banach spaces. We propose a definition for the weak time derivative that does not rely on the availability of a Hilbertian structure and explore conditions under which spaces of weakly differentiable functions (with values in an evolving Banach space) relate to classical Sobolev?Bochner spaces. An Aubin?Lions compactness result is proved. We analyse concrete examples of function spaces over timeevolving spatial domains and hypersurfaces for which we explicitly provide the definition of the time derivative and verify isomorphism properties with the aforementioned Sobolev?Bochner spaces. We conclude with the proof of well posedness for a class of nonlinear monotone problems on an abstract evolving space (generalising the evolutionary pLaplace equation on a moving domain or surface) and identify some additional problems that can be formulated with the setting developed in this work.

Abstract
While the quasilinear isothermal Euler equations are an excellent model for gas pipeline flow, the operation of the pipeline flow with high pressure and small Mach numbers allows us to obtain approximate solutions by a simpler semilinear model. We provide a derivation of the semilinear model that shows that the semilinear model is valid for sufficiently low Mach numbers and sufficiently high pressures. We prove an existence result for continuous solutions of the semilinear model that takes into account lower and upper bounds for the pressure and an upper bound for the magnitude of the Mach number of the gas flow. These state constraints are important both in the operation of gas pipelines and to guarantee that the solution remains in the set where the model is physically valid. We show the constrained exact boundary controllability of the system with the same pressure and Mach number constraints.

Abstract
This paper is concerned with the distributed optimal control of a timediscrete CahnHilliardNavierStokes system with variable densities. It focuses on the doubleobstacle potential which yields an optimal control problem for a variational inequality of fourth order and the NavierStokes equation. The existence of solutions to the primal system and of optimal controls is established. The Lipschitz continuity of the constraint mapping is derived and used to characterize the directional derivative of the constraint mapping via a system of variational inequalities and partial differential equations. Finally, strong stationarity conditions are presented following an approach from Mignot and Puel.

Abstract
In this paper we consider a fluidstructure interaction problem given by the steady Navier Stokes equations coupled with linear elasticity taken from [Lasiecka, Szulc, and Zochoswki, Nonl. Anal.: Real World Appl., 44, 2018]. An elastic body surrounded by a liquid in a rectangular domain is deformed by the flow which can be controlled by the Dirichlet boundary condition at the inlet. On the walls along the channel homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions and on the outflow boundary donothing conditions are prescribed. We recall existence results for the nonlinear system from that reference and analyze the control to state mapping generaziling the results of [Wollner and Wick, J. Math. Fluid Mech., 21, 2019] to the setting of the nonlinear NavierStokes equation for the fluid and the situation of mixed boundary conditions in a domain with corners.

Abstract, PDF (5706 kByte)
In this article we propose a novel regularization method for a class of nonlinear inverse problems that is inspired by an application in quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is a special instance of a general dynamical image reconstruction problem with an underlying time discrete physical model. Our regularization strategy is based on dictionary learning, a method that has been proven to be effective in classical MRI. To address the resulting nonconvex and nonsmooth optimization problem, we alternate between updating the physical parameters of interest via a LevenbergMarquardt approach and performing several iterations of a dictionary learning algorithm. This process falls under the category of nested alternating optimization schemes. We develop a general such algorithmic framework, integrated with the LevenbergMarquardt method, of which the convergence theory is not directly available from the literature. Global sublinear and local strong linear convergence in infinite dimensions under certain regularity conditions for the subdifferentials are investigated based on the Kurdyka?Lojasiewicz inequality. Eventually, numerical experiments demonstrate the practical potential and unresolved challenges of the method.

Abstract, PDF (23 MByte)
We develop a semismooth Newton framework for the numerical solution of fixedpoint equations that are posed in Banach spaces. The framework is motivated by applications in the field of obstacletype quasivariational inequalities and implicit obstacle problems. It is discussed in a general functional analytic setting and allows for inexact function evaluations and Newton steps. Moreover, if a certain contraction assumption holds, we show that it is possible to globalize the algorithm by means of the Banach fixedpoint theorem and to ensure qsuperlinear convergence to the problem solution for arbitrary starting values. By means of a localization technique, our Newton method can also be used to determine solutions of fixedpoint equations that are only locally contractive and not uniquely solvable. We apply our algorithm to a quasivariational inequality which arises in thermoforming and which not only involves the obstacle problem as a source of nonsmoothness but also a semilinear PDE containing a nondifferentiable Nemytskii operator. Our analysis is accompanied by numerical experiments that illustrate the meshindependence and q superlinear convergence of the developed solution algorithm.

Abstract, PDF (5947 kByte)
We derive various novel free boundary problems as limits of a coupled bulksurface reactiondiffusion system modelling ligandreceptor dynamics on evolving domains. These limiting free boundary problems may be formulated as Stefantype problems on an evolving hypersurface. Our results are new even in the setting where there is no domain evolution. The models are of particular relevance to a number of applications in cell biology. The analysis utilises L^{∞}estimates in the manner of De Giorgi iterations and other technical tools, all in an evolving setting. We also report on numerical simulations.

Abstract, PDF (447 kByte)
The present article is dedicated to proving convergence of the stochastic gradient method in case of random shape optimization problems. To that end, we consider Bernoulli's exterior free boundary problem with a random interior boundary. We recast this problem into a shape optimization problem by means of the minimization of the expected Dirichlet energy. By restricting ourselves to the class of convex, sufficiently smooth domains of bounded curvature, the shape optimization problem becomes strongly convex with respect to an appropriate norm. Since this norm is weaker than the differentiability norm, we are confronted with the socalled twonorm discrepancy, a wellknown phenomenon from optimal control. We therefore need to adapt the convergence theory of the stochastic gradient method to this specific setting correspondingly. The theoretical findings are supported and validated by numerical experiments.

Abstract, PDF (7590 kByte)
In the field of quantitative imaging, the image information at a pixel or voxel in an underlying domain entails crucial information about the imaged matter. This is particularly important in medical imaging applications, such as quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (qMRI), where quantitative maps of biophysical parameters can characterize the imaged tissue and thus lead to more accurate diagnoses. Such quantitative values can also be useful in subsequent, automatized classification tasks in order to discriminate normal from abnormal tissue, for instance. The accurate reconstruction of these quantitative maps is typically achieved by solving two coupled inverse problems which involve a (forward) measurement operator, typically illposed, and a physical process that links the wanted quantitative parameters to the reconstructed qualitative image, given some underlying measurement data. In this review, by considering qMRI as a prototypical application, we provide a mathematicallyoriented overview on how datadriven approaches can be employed in these inverse problems eventually improving the reconstruction of the associated quantitative maps.

Abstract, PDF (501 kByte)
Quasivariational inequalities (QVIs) of obstacle type in many cases have multiple solutions that can be ordered. We study a multitude of properties of the operator mapping the source term to the minimal or maximal solution of such QVIs. We prove that the solution maps are locally Lipschitz continuous and directionally differentiable and show existence of optimal controls for problems that incorporate these maps as the controltostate operator. We also consider a Moreau?Yosidatype penalisation for the QVI wherein we show that it is possible to approximate the minimal and maximal solutions by sequences of minimal and maximal solutions (respectively) of certain PDEs, which have a simpler structure and offer a convenient characterisation in particular for computation. For solution mappings of these penalised problems, we prove a number of properties including Lipschitz and differential stability. Making use of the penalised equations, we derive (in the limit) Cstationarity conditions for the control problem, in addition to the Bouligand stationarity we get from the differentiability result.

Abstract, PDF (779 kByte)
We consider the optimal control of a PDE with random source term subject to probabilistic or almost sure state constraints. In the main theoretical result, we provide an exact formula for the Clarke subdifferential of the probability function without a restrictive assumption made in an earlier paper. The focus of the paper is on numerical solution algorithms. As for probabilistic constraints, we apply the method of spherical radial decomposition. Almost sure constraints are dealt with a MoreauYosida smoothing of the constraint function accompanied by Monte Carlo sampling of the given distribution or its support or even just the boundary of its support. Moreover, one can understand the almost sure constraint as a probabilistic constraint with safety level one which offers yet another perspective. Finally, robust optimization can be applied efficiently when the support is sufficiently simple. A comparative study of these five different methodologies is carried out and illustrated.

Abstract, PDF (1045 kByte)
In this work, we study physicsinformed neural networks (PINNs) constrained by partial differential equations (PDEs) and their application in approximating multiscale PDEs. From a continuous perspective, our formulation corresponds to a nonstandard PDEconstrained optimization problem with a PINNtype objective. From a discrete standpoint, the formulation represents a hybrid numerical solver that utilizes both neural networks and finite elements. We propose a function space framework for the problem and develop an algorithm for its numerical solution, combining an adjointbased technique from optimal control with automatic differentiation. The multiscale solver is applied to a heat transfer problem with oscillating coefficients, where the neural network approximates a finescale problem, and a coarsescale problem constrains the learning process. We show that incorporating coarsescale information into the neural network training process through our modelling framework acts as a preconditioner for the lowfrequency component of the finescale PDE, resulting in improved convergence properties and accuracy of the PINN method. The relevance of the hybrid solver to numerical homogenization is discussed.

Abstract, PDF (1911 kByte)
We investigate a complex system involving multiple shapes to be optimized in a domain, taking into account geometric constraints on the shapes and uncertainty appearing in the physics. We connect the differential geometry of product shape manifolds with multishape calculus, which provides a novel framework for the handling of piecewise smooth shapes. This multishape calculus is applied to a shape optimization problem where shapes serve as obstacles in a system governed by steady state incompressible NavierStokes flow. Numerical experiments use our recently developed stochastic augmented Lagrangian method and we investigate the choice of algorithmic parameters using the example of this application.
