AB - An optimal control problem governed by a bilinear elliptic equation is considered. This
problem is solved by the sequential quadratic programming (SQP) method in an
infinite-dimensional framework. In each level of this iterative method the solution of
linear-quadratic subproblem is computed by a Galerkin projection using proper orthogonal
decomposition (POD). Thus, an approximate (inexact) solution of the subproblem is
determined. Based on a POD a-posteriori error estimator developed by
Tröltzsch and Volkwein [Comput. Opt. Appl. 44 (2009) 83–115]
the difference of the suboptimal to the (unknown) optimal solution of the linear-quadratic
subproblem is estimated. Hence, the inexactness of the discrete solution is controlled in
such a way that locally superlinear or even quadratic rate of convergence of the SQP is
ensured. Numerical examples illustrate the efficiency for the proposed approach.
