A new postprocessing technique suitable for nonuniform triangulations is employed in the sensitivity analysis of some model optimal shape design problems.

The aim of this paper is to study regional gradient observability for a diffusion system and the reconstruction of the state gradient without the knowledge of the state. First, we give definitions and characterizations of these new concepts and establish necessary conditions for the sensor structure in order to obtain regional gradient observability. We also explore an approach which allows for a regional gradient reconstruction. The developed method is original and leads to a numerical algorithm...

An algorithm for quadratic minimization with simple bounds is introduced, combining, as many well-known methods do, active set strategies and projection steps. The novelty is that here the criterion for acceptance of a projected trial point is weaker than the usual ones, which are based on monotone decrease of the objective function. It is proved that convergence follows as in the monotone case. Numerical experiments with bound-constrained quadratic problems from CUTE collection show that the modified...
