Goal–oriented a posteriori error estimation for Dirichlet boundary control problems

We study goal-oriented a posteriori error estimates for the numerical approximation ofDirichlet boundary control problem governed by a convection diffusion equation withpointwise control constraints on a two dimensional convex polygonal domain. The localdiscontinuous Galerkin method is used as a discretization technique since the controlvariable is involved in a variational form in a natural sense. We derive primal–dualweightederrorestimatesfortheobjectivefunctionalwithanerrortermrepresentingthemismatch in the complementary system due to the discretization. Numerical examplesare presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed estimator.
