In this paper we present a survey of numericalmethods for optimal control problems governed by convection-diffusion equations. For ease of exposition we focus on stationary convection-diffusion optimal control problems with distributed control. Several effective numericalmethods including stabilizedmethods and discontinuous Galerkinmethods are reviewed. Furthermore, we also make some investigations about convection-diffusion optimal control problems with state constraints and pointwisely imposed control.

Keywords : convection-diffusion equations; optimal control problems; streamline upwind Petrov-Galerkin method; edge stabilization Galerkin method; local projection stabilization method; interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin method; local discontinuous Galerkin method; a priori error estimates; a posteriori error estimates; adaptive finite element method
