Asymptotic Properties of Monte Carlo Methods in Elliptic PDE-Constrained Optimization under Uncertainty

Werner Römisch, Thomas M. Surowiec

Monte Carlo approximations for random linear elliptic PDE constrained optimization problems are studied. We use empirical process theory to obtain best possible mean convergence rates $O(n^{-\frac{1}{2}})$ for optimal values and solutions, and a central limit theorem for optimal values. The latter allows to determine asymptotically consistent confidence intervals by using resampling techniques.
