Abstract : Parameter and state estimation techniques are discussed for an elliptic system arising in a developmental model for the antenna surface in the Maypole Hoop/Column antenna. A computational algorithm based on spline approximations for the state and elastic parameters is given and numerical results obtained using this algorithm are summarized. (Author)
