An Introduction to the Controllability of Partial Differential Equations

  title={An Introduction to the Controllability of Partial Differential Equations},
  author={Sorin Micu and Enrique Zuazua},
These notes are a written abridged version of a course that both authors have delivered in the last five years in a number of schools and doctoral programs. Our main goal is to introduce some of the main results and tools of the modern theory of controllability of Partial Differential Equations (PDE). The notes are by no means complete. We focus on the most elementary material by making a particular choice of the problems under consideration. Roughly speaking, the controllability problem may be… CONTINUE READING
