Boundary stabilization for a star-shaped network of variable coefficients strings linked by a point mass

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(1) Related Papers Cited by
  • This study is concerned with the pointwise stabilization for a star-shaped network of $ N $ variable coefficients strings connected at the common node by a point mass and subject to boundary feedback dampings at all extreme nodes. It is shown that the closed-loop system has a sequence of generalized eigenfunctions which forms a Riesz basis for the state Hilbert space. As a consequence, the spectrum-determined growth condition fulfills. In the meanwhile, the asymptotic expression of the spectrum is presented, and the exponential stability of the system is obtained by giving the optimal decay rate. We prove also that a phenomenon of lack of uniform stability occurs in the absence of damper at one extreme node. This paper reconfirmed the main stability results given by Hansen and Zuazua [SIAM J. Control Optim., 33 (1995), 1357-1391] in a very particular case.
