Abstract : Spline-based computational procedures for parameter estimation and optimal control problems involving delay and partial differential equations are outlined. Brief discussions are presented reporting on application of the ideas to compute feedback controls for delay systems, to estimate variable coefficients in population dispersal models, and to estimate parameters in higher order models arising in elasticity.
