Control of dispersive equations for surface waves

Abstract : This work is devoted to prove a series of results concerning the control and stabilization properties of dispersive models posed on a bounded interval. Initially, we study the internal stabilization of a coupled system of two Korteweg-de Vries equations (KdV), the so-called Gear-Grimshaw system. Defining a convenient Lyapunov function we obtain the exponential decay of the total energy associated to the model. We also prove results of null and exact controllability for the Korteweg-de Vries equation with a control acting internally on a subset of the domain. In the case of the null controllability for the linear model, we use a classical duality approach which reduces the problem to the study of an observability inequality that, in this work, is proved by means of a Carleman inequality. Then, making use of cut-off functions, the exact controllability is also investigated. In both cases, the result for the nonlinear system is obtained by means of fixed-point argument. Finally, in view of the result of the boundary controllability obtained by L. Rosier for the KdV equation, we prove that the linear Boussinesq system of KdV-KdV type is exactly controllable when the controls act in the boundary conditions. Our analysis is performed using multipliers and the duality approach mentioned above. Adding a damping mechanism in the boundary, it is proved that the nonlinear system is also exactly controllable and that the energy associated to the model decays exponentially
