Discontinuous Galerkin method for a distributed optimal control problem of time fractional diffusion equation
Prof. Xiaoping Xie
Sichuan University

This talk is devoted to the numerical analysis of a control constrained distributed optimal control problem subject to a time fractional diffusion equation with non-smooth initial data. The solutions of the state and co-state are decomposed into singular and regular parts, and some growth estimates are obtained for the singular parts. Following the variational discretization concept, a full discretization is applied to the state and co-state equations by using conforming linear finite element method in space and piecewise constant discontinuous Galerkin method in time. Error estimates are derived by employing the growth estimates. In particular, graded temporal grids are adopted to obtain the first-order temporal accuracy. Finally, numerical experiments are provided to verify the theoretical results.
