We investigate two optimal harvesting problems related to age-dependent population dynamics; namely we consider two problems of maximizing the profit for age-structured population dynamics with respect to a size-dependent harvesting effort. We evaluate the directional derivatives for the cost functionals. The structure of the harvesting effort is uniquely determined by its intensity (magnitude) and by its area of action/distribution. We derive an iterative algorithm to increase at each iteration the profit by changing the intensity of the harvesting effort and its distribution area. Some numerical tests are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results for the first optimal harvesting problem.
Poro-elastic systems have been used extensively in modeling fluid flow in porous media in petroleum and earthquake engineering. Nowadays, they are frequently used to model fluid flow through biological tissues, cartilages, and bones. In these biological applications, the fluid-solid mixture problems, which may also incorporate structural viscosity, are considered on bounded domains with appropriate non-homogeneous boundary conditions. The recent work in [
The plant to be stabilized is a system node
The goal of this article is to provide backward uniqueness results for several models of parabolic equations set on the half line, namely the heat equation, and the heat equation with quadratic potential and with purely imaginary quadratic potentials, with non-homogeneous boundary conditions. Such result can thus also be interpreted as a strong lack of controllability on the half line, as it shows that only the trivial initial datum can be steered to zero. Our results are based on the explicit knowledge of the kernel of each equation, and standard arguments from complex analysis, namely the Phragmén-Lindelöf principle.
This work is devoted to establish a bang-bang principle of time optimal controls for a controlled age-structured population evolving in a bounded domain of
In this work, we study null-controllability of the Lotka-McKendrick system of population dynamics. The control is acting on the individuals in a given age range. The main novelty we bring in this work is that the age interval in which the control is active does not necessarily contain a neighbourhood of
This paper deals with the numerical approximation of null controls for the wave equation posed in a bounded domain of
This paper proves the asymptotic stability of the multidimensional wave equation posed on a bounded open Lipschitz set, coupled with various classes of positive-real impedance boundary conditions, chosen for their physical relevance: time-delayed, standard diffusive (which includes the Riemann-Liouville fractional integral) and extended diffusive (which includes the Caputo fractional derivative). The method of proof consists in formulating an abstract Cauchy problem on an extended state space using a dissipative realization of the impedance operator, be it finite or infinite-dimensional. The asymptotic stability of the corresponding strongly continuous semigroup is then obtained by verifying the sufficient spectral conditions derived by Arendt and Batty (Trans. Amer. Math. Soc., 306 (1988)) as well as Lyubich and Vũ (Studia Math., 88 (1988)).
In this paper, we study the controllability of a fluid-structure interaction system. We consider a viscous and incompressible fluid modeled by the Boussinesq system and the structure is a rigid body with arbitrary shape which satisfies Newton's laws of motion. We assume that the motion of this system is bidimensional in space. We prove the local null controllability for the velocity and temperature of the fluid and for the position and velocity of rigid body for a control acting only on the temperature equation on a fixed subset of the fluid domain.
