This monograph considers problems of optimal control for partial differential equaยญ tions of elliptic and, more importantly, of hyperbolic types on networked domains. The main goal is to describe, develop and analyze iterative space and time domain decompositions of such problems on the infinite-dimensional level. While domain decomposition methods have a long history dating back well over one hundred years, it is only during the last decade that they have become a major tool in numerical analysis of partial differential equations. A keyword in this context is parallelism. This development is perhaps best illustrated by the fact that we just encountered the 15th annual conference precisely on this topic. Without attempting to provide a complete list of introductory references let us just mention the monograph by Quarteroni and Valli [91] as a general up-to-date reference on domain decomposition methods for partial differential equations. The emphasis of this monograph is to put domain decomposition methods in the context of so-called virtual optimal control problems and, more importantly, to treat optimal control problems for partial differential equations and their decomยญ positions by an all-at-once approach. This means that we are mainly interested in decomposition techniques which can be interpreted as virtual optimal control problems and which, together with the real control problem coming from an unยญ derlying application, lead to a sequence of individual optimal control problems on the subdomains that are iteratively decoupled across the interfaces
