AB - An optimal control problem governed by a quasilinear parabolic equation with additional constraints is investigated. The optimal control problem is converted to an optimization problem which is solved using a penalty function technique. The existence and uniqueness theorems are investigated. The derivation of formulae for the gradient of the modified function is explainedby solving the adjoint problem.
