M20. Inverse and Control Problems in Mechanics

Variational approaches are widely used in all fields of inverse and related ill-posed problems, nonsmooth optimization, optimal control, and homogenization. In this respect, we focus but are not limited to singular and unilaterally constrained problems arising in mechanics, geophysics, and real-world kinetics which are governed by complex systems of PDE equations and inequalities. In a broad scope, the minisymposium objectives are directed toward advances which are attained in the theory, computation, and application of inverse and ill-posed problems.
