The group OMEVA (acronym of Optimization and Variational Methods) is a research group of Departmento de Matemáticas of Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha at Ciudad Real, making an effort in research on vector variational problems, optimal design and topology optimization problems. The research scope of the group goes from mathematical analysis questions to applied optimization problems, sometimes in collaboration with other research groups in Engineering, passing through numerical simulation and computing for optimization problems.


We acknowledge that the research work of the group is now supported by:

  • Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad, Gobierno de España through grant MTM2013-47053-P “Técnicas variacionales en control y diseño óptimo: análisis, simulación y aplicaciones”
  • Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha through grant PEI-II-2014-010-P “Diseño y control óptimo: aplicaciones en Ingeniería”
  • Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha with and a grant for OMEVA Research Group
