This book studies observation and control operators for linear systems where the free evolution of the state can be described by an operator semigroup on a Hilbert space. The emphasis is on well-posedness, observability and controllability properties. The abstract results are supported by a large number of examples coming mostly from partial differential equations. These examples are worked out in detail. This book is meant to be an elementary introduction in this theory. The first meaning of "elementary'' is that the text is aimed to be accessible to any reader familiar with linear algebra, calculus, the basics of Hilbert spaces and differential equations. We introduce everything needed on operator semigroups and most of the background used is summarized in the Appendices, often with proofs. The second meaning of "elementary'' is that we only cover results for which we can provide complete proofs. In our bibliographic comments we mention some of the more advanced results, for example those based on microlocal analysis.

## Abstract

This book studies observation and control operators for linear systems where the free evolution of the state can be described by an operator semigroup on a Hilbert space. The emphasis is on well-posedness, observability and controllability properties. The abstract results are supported by a large number of examples coming mostly from partial differential equations. These examples are worked out in detail. This book is meant to be an elementary introduction in this theory. The first meaning of "elementary'' is that the text is aimed to be accessible to any reader familiar with linear algebra, calculus, the basics of Hilbert spaces and differential equations. We introduce everything needed on operator semigroups and most of the background used is summarized in the Appendices, often with proofs. The second meaning of "elementary'' is that we only cover results for which we can provide complete proofs. In our bibliographic comments we mention some of the more advanced results, for example those based on microlocal analysis.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
