TU CE GSC CE People at the Graduate School CE Researchers Prof. Dr. Christoph Erath Master/Diploma Thesis

All subsequently mentioned theses deal with optimization problems in the context of partial differential equations (PDEs). It is therefore advantageous to have some experience in at least one of the following fields:

- Theory of PDEs
- Numerics for PDEs
- Nonlinear Optimization
- Optimal Control

**Currently open theses:**

opt ctrl hindernis (Development of a relaxation and penalization algorithm for optimal control of the obstacle problem)

semismooth plasticity (Implementation of a semismooth Newton-method for the solution of problems in elastoplasticity)

projected newton (Implementation and analysis of the projected gradient method for PDE constrained optimal control problems with control constraints)

(Note: all announcements are written in German, but the theses may also be treated by non-German speaking candidates. Please contact me for further information.)

**Examples for theses written under my supervision:**

diplomathesis opt ctrl obstacle (Optimal control of the obstacle problem -- regularization and algorithms, by O. Thoma)

diplomathesis lagerungsrandbedingungen (Anpassung diskreter Lagerungsrandbedingungen von Schwingungsmodellen mittels mathematischer Optimierung, by R. Wirnharter)
