Null controllability of a nonlinear heat equation
Received10 Jan 2002
We study the internal exact null controllability of a nonlinear heat equation with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary condition. The method used combines the Kakutani fixed-point theorem and the Carleman estimates for the backward adjoint linearized system. The result extends to the case of boundary control.
