Speech Title: Feedback stabilization of 1-D hyperbolic systems

Abstract: Hyperbolic systems in one space dimension appear in various real life applications (navigable rivers and irrigation channels, heat exchangers, plug flow chemical reactors, gas pipe lines, chromatography,...). This talk will focus the stabilization issue of these systems. Stabilizing feedback laws will be constructed. This includes explicit feedback laws which have been implemented for the regulation of the rivers La Sambre and La Meuse. The talk will also deal with the more complicate case where there are source terms as well as with the integral action.

Brief Introduction to Pro. Jean-Michel CoronJean-Michel Coron studied at École polytechnique. He first worked in the field of non-linear functional analysis. Since the beginning of the nineties, he studied the control theory of finite dimensional control systems and of partial differential equations, which includes both controllability and stabilization issues. His results put strong emphasis on nonlinear phenomena, and part of them found real life applications to control channels. Jean-Michel Coron was awarded numerous prizes, like the Fermat prize in 1993, the Dargelos prize in 2002, the ICIAM Maxwell Prize in 2015 and the W. T. and Idalia Reid Prize (SIAM) in 2017. He was invited as a semi/plenary speaker at the 2010 International Congress of Mathematicians, at the 2015 International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics and at the IFAC 2017 World Congress. He is now a Professor Emeritus at Sorbonne Université and a member of the French Academy of Sciences. According to the Mathematics Genealogy Project he has more than 130 descendants.
