The main goal of control theory is to study the behavior of dynamical systems. In particular, the control and stabilization of distributed parameter systems of partial differential equations are motivated by the necessity to control large structures, like robots, space stations or acoustic systems. The essential problems are to know how to act on the system (choice of the feedback law) and to determine the region on which we act (often characterized by geometrical properties).
