Bilinear Spatial Control of the Velocity Term in a Kirchhoff Plate Equation
MetadataShow full metadata
We consider a bilinear optimal control problem with the state equation being a Kirchhoff plate equation. The control is a function of the spatial variables and acts as a multiplier of the velocity term. The unique optimal control, driving the state solution close to a desired evolution function, is characterized in terms of the solution of the optimality system.
