Some applications of optimal control theory of distributed systems
ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations, Volume 8  (2002), p. 195-218

In this paper we present some applications of the J.-L. Lions' optimal control theory to real life problems in engineering and environmental sciences. More precisely, we deal with the following three problems: sterilization of canned foods, optimal management of waste-water treatment plants and noise control
