Exact boundary controllability of an integrodifferential equation

  • Günter Leugering


An integrodifferential equation of the Volterra type is considered under the action of anL2(0, T, L2(Γ))-boundary control. By harmonic analysis arguments it is shown that the controllability results obtained in [17] for the underlying reference model associated with a trivial convolution kernel, carry over to the model under consideration without any smallness assumption concerning the memory kernel.
