Abstract
We study an optimal control problem for viscosity solutions of a Hamilton–Jacobi equation describing the propagation of a onedimensional graph with the control being the speed function. The existence of an optimal control is proved together with an approximate controllability result in the $H^{1}$norm. We prove convergence of a discrete optimal control problem based on a monotone finite difference scheme and describe some numerical results.
