Some aspects of reachability for parabolic boundary control problems with control constraints
- 112 Downloads
A class of one-dimensional parabolic optimal boundary control problems is considered. The discussion includes Neumann, Robin, and Dirichlet boundary conditions. The reachability of a given target state in final time is discussed under box constraints on the control. As a mathematical tool, related exponential moment problems are investigated. Moreover, based on a detailed study of the adjoint state, a technique is presented to find the location and the number of the switching points of optimal bang-bang controls. Numerical examples illustrate this procedure.
