Abstract

We consider the problem of designing a passenger side mirror for an automobile that does not have a blind spot and that does not distort the image. Our model consists of a coupled pair of partial differential equations that do not have a common solution. Using a best mean-square-error functional, we find approximate solutions using nonlinear optimization. In one case a local minimum provides a mirror that solves the problem, but it does not reverse the image.
