Applications of Observability Inequalities
This article presents two observability inequalities for the heat equation over Ω × (0, T). In the first one, the observation is from a subset of positive measure in Ω × (0, T), while in the second, the observation is from a subset of positive surface measure on ∂Ω × (0, T). We will provide some applications for the above-mentioned observability inequalities, the bang-bang property for the minimal time control problems and the bang-bang property for the minimal norm control problems, and also establish new open problems related to observability inequalities and the aforementioned applications.
