In this paper, we deal with both nonviscous and viscous Burgers-type equations on a bounded interval. We study the global exact controllability of these equations when we have three controls: one control is the right member of the equation and is constant with respect to the space variable; the two others are the boundary values. For a first time, we are interested in nonviscous Burgers-type equations and we prove their global exact controllability for every time $T>0$ with such controls thanks…

On the uniform controllability for a family of non-viscous and viscous Burgers-α systems

In this paper we study the global controllability of families of the so called non-viscous and viscous Burgers-α systems by using boundary and space independent distributed controls. In these

Approximate controllability of the viscous Burgers equation on the real line

The paper is devoted to studying the 1D viscous Burgers equation controlled by an external force. It is assumed that the initial state is essentially bounded, with no decay condition at infinity, and

Global exponential stabilisation for the Burgers equation with localised control

We consider the 1D viscous Burgers equation with a control localised in a finite interval. It is proved that, for any $\varepsilon>0$, one can find a time $T$ of order $\log\varepsilon^{-1}$ such

Uniform Controllability of Scalar Conservation Laws in the Vanishing Viscosity Limit

This work constructs boundary controls so that the solution is driven to the targeted constant state, and requires these controls to be uniformly bounded as $\varepsilon \rightarrow 0^+$ in an appropriate space.



On the Uniform Controllability of the Burgers Equation

The (global) exact controllability property to nonzero constant states is proved with control functions whose norms in an appropriate space are bounded independently of $\nu$, which belongs to a suitably small interval.

Obstruction and some approximate controllability results for the burgers equation and related problems

The paper studies the approximate controllability for the Burgers equation. Due to the presence of a superlinear term, an obstruction phenomenon arises which implies a lack of approximate

Approximate controllability of the Stokes system is established by a constructive method when control is a right-hand-side concentrated in subdomain i.e. in the case of local distributed control.
