MATH Seminar: “Backstepping for Higher Order PDEs”, Türker Özsarı, 3:00PM December 8 (EN)

You are cordially invited to the Analysis Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Türker Özsarı (Bilkent)

“Backstepping for Higher Order PDEs”

Abstract: I will make a quick introduction to backstepping, a method for constructing boundary feedback controllers for partial differential equations (PDEs). I will use the canonical example of an unstable heat equation for this. Then, I will talk about some recent results on the application of this method to Korteweg–de Vries (KdV) type higher order PDEs. A few open problems will be discussed, too.
The level of talk is suitable for students who have some acquaintance with PDEs and their basic analysis.
