Optimal Control/Calculus of Variations
A least-squares formulation for the approximation of null controls for the Stokes system
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 351 (2013) no. 13-14, pp. 545-550.

This work deals with the approximation of distributed null controls for the Stokes equation. The existence of $L2$ controls has been obtained by Fursikov and Imanuvilov (1996) [5] via Carleman-type estimates. We introduce and analyze a least-squares formulation of the controllability problem, and we show that it allows the construction of convergent sequences of functions toward null controls for the Stokes system.

Cette note concerne lʼapproximation de contrôles exactes pour le système de Stokes. Lʼexistence de contrôles $L2$ a été obtenue dans Fursikov et Imanuvilov (1996) [5], en utilisant des inégalités de type Carleman. On introduit et analyse une formulation de type moindres carrés et on montre quʼelle permet la construction de suites convergentes de fonctions vers des contrôles à zéro du système de Stokes.
