This book discusses theoretical approaches to the study of optimal control problems governed by non-linear evolutions - including semi-linear equations, variational inequalities and systems with phase transitions. It also provides algorithms for solving non-linear parabolic systems and multiphase Stefan-like systems.


". . .a substantial book that will satisfy the appetite of mathematical control theorists. "

---Mathematical Reviews

". . .accessible. . . . . .highly recommended. . ..a good blend of theoretical and numerical treatment of the subject. "

---Applied Mechanics Reviews

". . .fills a gap in the literature on optimal control theory and its applications. . . .offer[s] an invaluable variety of additional results. . .and also provide[s] the reader with helpful information on the history and priority of the main results. . . .an elegant summing-up of many results that are spread out in the literature, most of them having been obtained by the authors. . ..an excellent monograph.
