  • In the paper, the problems of controllability and approximate controllability are studied for the control system $ w_t = w_{xx} $, $ w_x(0,\cdot) = u $, $ x>0 $, $ t\in(0,T) $, where $ u\in L^\infty(0,T) $ is a control. It is proved that each initial state of the system is approximately controllable to each target state in a given time $ T $. A necessary and sufficient condition for controllability in a given time $ T $ is obtained in terms of solvability of a Markov power moment problem. It is also shown that there is no initial state which is null-controllable in a given time $ T $. Orthogonal bases are constructed in $ H^1 $ and $ H_1 $. Using these bases, numerical solutions to the approximate controllability problem are obtained. The results are illustrated by examples.
