The field of control theory in PDEs has broadened considerably as more realistic models have been introduced and investigated. This book presents a broad range of recent developments, new discoveries, and mathematical tools in the field. The authors discuss topics such as elasticity, thermo-elasticity, aero-elasticity, interactions between fluids and elastic structures, and fluid dynamics and the new challenges that they present. Other control theoretic problems include parabolic systems, dynamical Lame systems, linear and nonlinear hyperbolic equations, and pseudo-differential operators on a manifold. This is a valuable tool authored by international specialists in the field.
