In this paper we prove, in a separable reflexive uniformly smooth Banach space, the existence of solutions of a perturbed first order differential inclusion governed by the proximal normal cone to a moving set depending on the time and on the state. The perturbation is assumed to be separately upper semicontinuous.
By measuring the temperature at an arbitrary single point located inside an unknown object or on its boundary, we show how we can uniquely reconstruct all the coefficients appearing in a general parabolic equation which models its cooling. We also reconstruct the shape of the object. The proof hinges on the fact that we can detect infinitely many eigenfunctions whose Wronskian does not vanish. This allows us to evaluate these coefficients by solving a simple linear algebraic system. The geometry of the domain and its boundary are found by reconstructing the first eigenfunction.
We consider a singular phase field system located in a smooth bounded domain. In the entropy balance equation appears a logarithmic nonlinearity. The second equation of the system, deduced from a balance law for the microscopic forces that are responsible for the phase transition process, is perturbed by an additional term involving a possibly nonlocal maximal monotone operator and arising from a class of sliding mode control problems. We prove existence and uniqueness of the solution for this resulting highly nonlinear system. Moreover, under further assumptions, the longtime behavior of the solution is investigated.
In this paper, we present a Stackelberg strategy to control a semilinear parabolic equation. We use the concept of hierarchic control to combine the concepts of controllability with robustness. We have a control named the leader which is responsible for a controllability to trajectories objective. Additionally, we have a control named the follower, that solves a robust control problem. That means we solve for the optimal control in the presence of the worst disturbance case. In this way, the follower control is insensitive to a broad class of external disturbances.
An explicit lifespan estimate is presented for the derivative Schrödinger equations with periodic boundary condition.
In this paper, we consider the viscoelastic equation with Balakrishnan-Taylor damping and acoustic boundary conditions. This work is devoted to prove, under suitable conditions on the initial data, the global existence and uniform decay rate of the solutions when the relaxation function is not necessarily of exponential or polynomial type.
We study in this paper a hierarchical size-structured population dynamics model with environment feedback and delayed birth process. We are concerned with the asymptotic behavior, particularly on the effects of hierarchical structure and time lag on the long-time dynamics of the considered system. We formally linearize the system around a steady state and study the linearized system by
We study the optimal nonlinearity control problem for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation
