On the control of the Burgers-alpha model

Abstract

This work is devoted to proving the local null controllability of the Burgers-$\alpha$ model. The state is the solution to a regularized Burgers equation, where the transport term is of the form $zy_x$, $z=(Id-\alpha^2\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x^2})^{-1}y$, and $\alpha>0$ is a small parameter. We also prove some results concerning the behavior of the null controls and associated states as $\alpha\to 0^+$.
