**Abstract:**

In this paper we establish several results on approximate controllability of a semilinear wave equation by making use of a single multiplicative control. These results are then applied to discuss the exact controllability properties for the one dimensional version of the system at hand. The proof relies on linear semigroup theory and the results on the additive controllability of the semilinear wave equation. The approaches are constructive and provide explicit steering controls. Moreover, in the context of undamped wave equation, the exact controllability is established for a time which is uniform for all initial states.

**Abstract:**

We study the simultaneous exact controllability of two vibrating strings with variable physical coefficients and controlled from a common endpoint. We give sufficient conditions on the physical coefficients for which the eigenfrequencies of both systems do not coincide and the associated spectral gap is uniformly positive. Under these conditions, we show that these systems are simultaneously exactly controllable.

It is well known that the nuclear norm minimization problems are widely used in numerous fields such as machine learning, system recognition, and image processing, etc. It has captured considerable attention and taken good progress. Many researchers have made great contributions to the nuclear norm minimization problem with

In this paper we study the global well-posedness and the large-time behavior of solutions to the initial-value problem for the dissipative Ostrovsky equation. We show that the associated solutions decay faster than the solutions of the dissipative KdV equation.

**Abstract:**

The generalized short pulse equation is a non-slowly-varying envelope approximation model that describes the physics of few-cycle-pulse optical solitons. This is a nonlinear evolution equation. In this paper, we prove the wellposedness of the Cauchy problem associated with this equation within a class of discontinuous solutions.

**Abstract:**

The solution to a free boundary problem of Bernoulli type, also known as Alt-Caffarelli problem, is studied via shape optimization techniques. In particular, a novel energy-gap cost functional approach with a state constraint consisting of a Robin condition is proposed as a shape optimization reformulation of the problem. Accordingly, the shape derivative of the cost is explicitly determined, and using the gradient information, a Lagrangian-like method is used to formulate an efficient boundary variation algorithm to numerically solve the minimization problem. The second order shape derivative of the cost is also computed, and through its characterization at the solution of the Bernoulli problem, the ill-posedness of the shape optimization formulation is proved. The analysis of the proposed formulation is completed by addressing the existence of optimal solution of the shape optimization problem and is accomplished by proving the continuity of the solution of the state problems with respect to the domain. The feasibility of the newly proposed method and its comparison with the classical energy-gap type cost functional approach is then presented through various numerical results. The numerical exploration issued in the study also includes results from a second-order optimization procedure based on a Newton-type method for resolving such minimization problem. This computational scheme put forward in the paper utilizes the Hessian information at the optimal solution and thus offers a state-of-the-art numerical approach for solving such free boundary problem via shape optimization setting.

**Abstract:**

In this paper we deal with a feedback control design for the action potential of a neuronal membrane in relation with the non-linear dynamics of the Hodgkin-Huxley mathematical model. More exactly, by using an external current as a control expressed by a relay graph in the equation of the potential, we aim at forcing it to reach a certain manifold in finite time and to slide on it after that. From the mathematical point of view we solve a system involving a parabolic differential inclusion and three nonlinear differential equations via an approximating technique and a fixed point result. The existence of the sliding mode and the determination of the time at which the potential reaches the prescribed manifold are proved by a maximum principle argument. Numerical simulations are presented.
