  • We study the wave equation in an interval with two linearly moving endpoints. We give the exact solution by a series formula, then we show that the energy of the solution decays at the rate $ 1/t $. We also establish observability results, at one or at both endpoints, in a sharp time. Moreover, using the Hilbert uniqueness method, we derive exact boundary controllability results.
