Stability of perturbed optimization problems with applications to parameter estimation. (English) Zbl 0736.49017

A result on Hölder-stability of solutions for optimization problems in Banach spaces is derived; here stability is obtained with respect to a weaker seminorm. The result is applied to parameter estimation problems for elliptic equations. Here, frequently, stability with respect to errors in the observation can only be achieved for a regularized problem. The relation between the original problem and the perturbed and regularized problem is clarified.
