We consider semilinear parabolic delay diﬀerential equations, where time delays occur in diﬀerent ways, discrete or continuously. Delays and associated weights are the subject of optimization and stabilization. In the most general case, the delays are generated by regular Borel measures. An existence and uniqueness theorem for such delay equations and the diﬀerentiability of the mapping is discussed that associates the solution of the delay equation to the measure or to a vector of time delays. Optimization problems are discussed for nonlocal and local Pyragas type feedback laws. The issue of stabilization by Pyragas type feedback is brieﬂy addressed. Several numerical examples are presented.
