Mesh Effects in the Numerical Solution of Optimal Control Problems

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Omni Ballroom A

Recently, much has been learned concerning the effects of the discretization mesh on the convergence of algorithms and on approximation error in optimal control. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss ongoing research in this area.
