Editorial Reviews

International scholars present their research in modeling passive and active control systems governed by partial differential equations. The papers emphasize shape analysis, optimal shape design, controllability, nonlinear boundary control, and stabilization. Specific topics include shape derivative on a fractured manifold, shape sensitivity analysis of problems with singularities, feedback laws for the optimal control of parabolic variational inequalities, and asymptotic analysis of aircraft wing models in subsonic airflow.
