Asymptotic Problems in Distributed Systems

Riviere Memorial Lecture 1985
  • J.-L. Lions


Distributed systems are systems governed by Partial Differential Equations; this terminology is classical in the framework of control theory; we use this terminology in order to emphasize that we are concerned, in this paper, with some asymptotic questions which arise in connection with the optimal control of distributed systems.
