This monograph presents controllability and stabilization methods in control theory that solve parabolic boundary value problems. Starting from foundational questions on Carleman inequalities for linear parabolic equations, the author addresses the controllability of parabolic equations on a variety of domains and the spectral decomposition technique for representing them. This method is, in fact, designed for use in a wider class of parabolic systems that include the heat and diffusion equations. Later chapters develop another process that employs stabilizing feedback controllers with a finite number of unstable modes, with special attention given to its use in the boundary stabilization of Navier–Stokes equations for the motion of viscous fluid. In turn, these applied methods are used to explore related topics like the exact controllability of stochastic parabolic equations with linear multiplicative noise. Intended for graduate students and researchers working on control problems involving nonlinear differential equations, Controllability and Stabilization of Parabolic Equations is the distillation of years of lectures and research. With a minimum of preliminaries, the book leaps into its applications for control theory with both concrete examples and accessible solutions to problems in stabilization and controllability that are still areas of current research.

The articles in this volume reflect a subsequent development after a scientific meeting entitled Carleman Estimates and Control Theory, held in Cartona in September 1999. The 14 research-level articles, written by experts, focus on new results on Carleman estimates and their applications to uniqueness and controlla bility of partial differential equations and systems. The main topics are unique continuation for elliptic PDEs and systems, con trol theory and inverse problems. New results on strong uniqueness for second or higher order operators are explored in detail in several papers. In the area of control theory. the reader will find applications of Carleman estimates to stabiliza tion, observability and exact control for the wave and the SchrOdinger equations. A final paper presents a challenging list of open problems on the topic of control lability of linear and sernilinear heat equations. The papers contain exhaustive and essentially self-contained proofs directly ac cessible to mathematicians, physicists, and graduate students with an elementary background in PDEs. Contributors are L. Aloui, M. Bellassoued, N. Burq, F. Colombini, B. Dehman, C. Grammatico, M. Khenissi, H. Koch, P. Le Borgne, N. Lerner, T. Nishitani. T. Okaji, K.D. Phung, R. Regbaoui, X.
