Because interval-valued programming problem is used to tackle interval uncertainty that appears in many mathematical or computer models of some deterministic real-world phenomena, this paper considers a non-differentiable interval-valued optimization problem in which objective and all constraint functions are interval-valued functions, and the involved endpoint functions in interval-valued functions are locally Lipschitz and Clarke sub-differentiable. A necessary optimality condition is first established. Some sufficient optimality conditions of the considered problem are derived for a feasible solution to be an efficient solution under the $G-(F, ρ)$ convexity assumption. Weak, strong, and converse duality theorems for Wolfe and Mond-Weir type duals are also obtained in order to relate the efficient solution of primal and dual inter-valued programs.

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is one of the main parameters to assess the quality of lake water. This study is intended to construct a parabolic distributed parameter system to describe the variation of DO under the ice, and identify the vertical exchange coefficient *K* of DO with the field data. Based on the existence and uniqueness of the weak solution of this system, the fixed solution problem of the parabolic equation is transformed into a parameter identification model, which takes *K* as the identification parameter, and the deviation of the simulated and measured DO as the performance index. We prove the existence of the optimal parameter of the identification model, and derive the first order optimality conditions. Finally, we construct the optimization algorithm, and have carried out numerical simulation. According to the measured DO data in Lake Valkea-Kotinen (Finland), it can be found that the orders of magnitude of the coefficient *K* varying from 10^{-6} to 10^{-1} m^{2} s^{-1}, the calculated and measured DO values are in good agreement. Within this range of *K* values, the overall trends are very similar. In order to get better fitting, the formula needs to be adjusted based on microbial and chemical consumption rates of DO.

In this paper, an adjoint-based optimization method is employed to estimate the unknown coefficients and states arising in an one-dimensional (1-D) magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow, whose dynamics can be modeled by a coupled partial differential equations (PDEs) under some suitable assumptions. In this model, the coefficients of the Reynolds number and initial conditions as well as state variables are supposed to be unknown and need to be estimated. We first employ the Lagrange multiplier method to connect the dynamics of the 1-D MHD system and the cost functional defined as the least square errors between the measurements in the experiment and the numerical simulation values. Then, we use the adjoint-based method to the augmented Lagrangian cost functional to get an adjoint coupled PDEs system, and the exact gradients of the defined cost functional with respect to these unknown parameters and initial states are further derived. The existed gradient-based optimization technique such as sequential quadratic programming (SQP) is employed for minimizing the cost functional in the optimization process. Finally, we illustrate the numerical examples to verify the effectiveness of our adjoint-based estimation approach.
