AMS Fall 2011 Central Section Meeting

Special Session on Continuous and Numerical Analysis in the Control of PDE's (SS 9A)

The session will bring together researchers who are actively engaged in the study of certain qualitative and control theoretic properties of solutions to partial differential equations (PDE's), and/or in the numerical analysis of relevant quantities (e.g., optimal feedback control laws consequent to numerically approximating the solution to large matrix Riccati equations). The Session will be principally focused on equation of hyperbolic and parabolic type (such as wave, elastodynamics, heat) arising from models observed in the fields of science and engineering: specific examples include fluid flow regimes, fluid-structure interactions, structural acoustic interactions, thin plates under the influence of thermal effects, elastic bodies under frictional contact, biological phenomena, etc.
