Control of an elliptic problem with pointwise state constraints. (English) Zbl 0606.49017
The paper deals with a control problem for an elliptic equation of second order \(Ay=v\) on \(\Omega\), \(y=0\) on \(\partial \Omega\). The cost functional is of the form \[ J(v)=\int_{\Omega}(y(v)-y_ 0)^ 2dx+(r/2)\int_{\Omega}v^ 2(x)dx,\quad v\in K \] where K is a convex closed subset of \(L^ 2(\Omega)\), \(y_ 0\in L^ 2(\Omega)\). The following control problem is solved: minimize J(v) for \(v\in K\) and \(| y(v,x)| \leq 1\) for all \(x\in \Omega.\)
The existence and uniqueness of a solution is proved. Optimality conditions are given and regularity of the optimal solution is investigated.
