2018 - Optimization of Dynamical Systems

We were delighted to host a summer school on the topics optimization and dynamical systems. It was organized by the RTG and took place at the University of Bremen, September 03 - 07, 2018. It aimed at giving a broad overview on the rich fields of optimization, dynamical systems, their intersections (as optimal control), and corresponding real-world applications. We invited Matthias Gerdts, Roland Herzog, and Sven Leyffer as main lecturers, who not only introduced these topics, but gave an insight into current research areas. Further speakers gave different perspectives and a deeper insight to more specialized topics. The program was completed by a poster session and extracurricular activities (like a mathematical city tour through Bremen).
