In the case of the wave equation, defined on a sufficiently smooth bounded domain of arbitrary dimension, and subject to Dirichlet boundary control, the operator B*L from boundary to boundary is bounded in the L2-sense. The proof combines hyperbolic differential energy methods with a microlocal elliptic component.
