Highlights of the year

A new activity has been launched by J.P. Zolesio and collaborators related to the control of Maxwell equations to locate radar targets by using a strong solution to the Hamilton-Jacobi equation.

The collaboration with ONERA (The French Aerospace Laboratory) was initiated by J.-A. Désidéri as a consultant in the Numerical Simulation in Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics Department (DSNA, Châtillon s/ Bâgneux). This collaboration develops along the following major areas of interest in aerodynamic optimization : adjoint equations for coupled aero-structural models, fast multigrid solvers for adjoint equations, global multilevel optimization, reduced models for shape optimization and control of numerical uncertainties, game strategies for multidisciplinary optimization. This year, the collaboration has been extended to the Department of Aerodynamic Applications (DAAP, Meudon) with a special focus on aerodynamic optimization coupled with structural design, or acoustic criteria.
