abstract = { Optimal control problems for semilinear elliptic equations
with control constraints and pointwise state constraints are
studied. Several theoretical results are derived, which are
necessary to carry out a numerical analysis for this class of
control problems. In particular, sufficient second-order optimality
conditions, some new regularity results on optimal controls and a
sufficient condition for the uniqueness of the Lagrange multiplier
associated with the state constraints are presented.
