GEOMETRICAL ASPECTS OF EXACT BOUNDARY
CONTROLLABILITY FOR THE WAVE EQUATION {
A NUMERICAL STUDY
M. ASCH AND G. LEBEAU
Abstract. This essentially numerical study, sets out to investigate vari-
ous geometrical properties of exact boundary controllability of the wave
equation when the control is applied on a part of the boundary. Re-
lationships between the geometry of the domain, the geometry of the
controlled boundary, the time needed to control and the energy of the
control are dealt with. A new norm of the control and an energetic cost
factor are introduced. These quantities enable a detailed appraisal of
the numerical solutions obtained and the detection of trapped rays.
