\left(\mathcal{P}\right) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \hat{u}\in\argmin_{u\in L^2_T} \left\{J\left(u\right)=\alpha_c \norm{u}_{1,T} + \frac{\beta}{2}\norm{u}^2_{T}+\alpha_s \norm{Lu}_{1,T} + \frac{\gamma}{2}\norm{Lu-z}_{T}^2\right\},

This issue is motivated by the challenging problem of sonic-boom minimization for supersonic aircrafts, which is governed by a Burgers-like equation. The travel time of the signal to the ground is larger than the time scale of the initial disturbance by orders of magnitude and this motivates our study of large time control of the sonic-boom propagation...

The turnpike property establishes that, when a general optimal control problem is settled in large time, for most of the time the optimal control and trajectories remain exponentially close to the optimal control and state of the corresponding steady-state or static optimal control problem...

Relevant models in Continuum Mechanics, Mathematical Physics and Biology are of non-local nature. Moreover, these models are applied for the description of several complex phenomena for which a local approach is inappropriate or limiting. In this setting, classical PDE theory fails because of non-locality. Yet many of the existing techniques can be tuned and adapted, although this is often a delicate matter...

The standard approach for solving a driving problem is a leadership strategy, based on the attraction that a driver agent exerts on other agent. Repulsion forces are mostly used for collision avoidance, defending a target or describing the need for personal space. We present a “guidance by repulsion” model describing the behaviour of two agents, a driver and an evader...

Control theory for PDEs has been quite exhaustively developed for model problems (heat and wave equations). But other important models in applications, of hybrid nature, remain poorly understood. This is…

Some important PDE models in Continuum Physics, such as hyperbolic conservation laws, represent a major challenge from a control viewpoint for two (closely related) reasons: solutions lack regularity properties and…

Most of the existing theory of controllability for PDEs has been developed in the absence of constraints on the controls and states. Thus, in practice, available results do not guarantee…

Control problems for evolution PDEs are most often considered in finite time intervals, without paying attention to the length of the control horizon and how it affects the nature of…

In real applications, models are not completely known since relevant parameters (deterministic or stochastic) are subject to uncertainty and indetermination. Accordingly, for practical purposes, robust analytical and computational methods are…
