The author considers the problem of minimizing \(\int (y(x,T)-z_ a(x))^ 2 dx+N\int v^ 2(t) dt\) subject to \(v\in U\subset L^ 2\) and \(y''-\Delta y=v(t)\delta (x-b)\) in \(\Omega\times (\cdot,T)\), \(\Omega\subset {\mathbb{R}}^ n\), \(b\in\Omega \), \(\delta\) Dirac distribution, as well as some variants of this problem. For the case above he proves necessary optimality conditions in the form of an adjoint equation and a variational inequality. A major technical problem is the regularity of \(y(\cdot,T)\). In an addendum it is shown that \(y(\cdot,T)\in L^ 2\) if \(v\in L^ 2\). To prove the necessary conditions, the first integral in the cost functional is regularized in order to obtain a regular adjoint, and a passage to the limit is carried out.
