A Deep Quench Approach to Optimal Control of an Allen-Cahn Equation with Dynamic Boundary Conditions and Double Obstacles

Hassan Farshbaf-Shaker*, Pierluigi Colli and J├╝rgen Sprekels

We consider optimal control problems for Allen-Cahn variational inequalities with a dynamic boundary condition involving double obstacles and the Laplace-Beltrami operator. The approach covers both the cases of distributed controls and of boundary controls. The cost functional is of standard tracking type, and box constraints for the controls are prescribed.
