Numerical approximation of null controls for the heat equation : Illposedness and remedies
(Inverse Problems, 20101231)The numerical approximation of exact or trajectory controls for the wave equation is known to be a delicate issue, since the pioneering work of GlowinskiLions in the nineties, because of the anomalous behavior of the ... 
Stationary waves to viscous heatconductive gases in halfspace: Existence, stability and convergence rate
(Mathematical Models and Methods in Applied Sciences, 20101231)The main concern of this paper is to study largetime behavior of solutions to an ideal polytropic model of compressible viscous gases in onedimensional halfspace. We consider an outflow problem and obtain a convergence ... 
A variational model for infin ite perimeter segmentations based on lipschitz level set functions: Denoising while keeping finely oscillatory boundaries
(Multiscale Modeling and Simulation, 20101231)We propose a new model for segmenting piecewise constant images with irregular object boundaries: a variant of the ChanVese model [T. F. Chan and L. A. Vese, IEEE Trans. Image Process., 10 (2000), pp. 266277], where the ... 
Asymptotic limits and stabilization for the 1D nonlinear MindlinTimoshenko system
(Journal of Systems Science and Complexity, 20101231)This paper shows how the so called von Kármán model can be obtained as a singular limit of a modified MindlinTimoshenko system when the modulus of elasticity in shear k tends to infinity, provided a regularizing term ... 
A systematic method for building smooth controls for smooth data
(Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems  Series B, 20101231)We prove a regularity result for an abstract control problem z' = Az + Bv with initial datum z(0) = z0 in which the goal is to determine a control v such that z(T) = 0. Under standard admissibility and observability ... 
The Hardy inequality and the heat equation in twisted tubes
(Journal des Mathematiques Pures et Appliquees, 20101231)We show that a twist of a threedimensional tube of uniform crosssection yields an improved decay rate for the heat semigroup associated with the Dirichlet Laplacian in the tube. The proof employs Hardy inequalities for ... 
Mathematical Models of Incompressible Fluids as Singular Limits of Complete Fluid Systems
(Milan Journal of Mathematics, 20101231)A rigorous justification of several wellknown mathematical models of incompressible fluid flows can be given in terms of singular limits of the scaled NavierStokesFourier system, where some of the characteristic numbers ...
