Null controllability of a thermoelastic plate. (English) Zbl 1013.35008

This paper concerns the null controllability of thermoelastic plates when the control acts in the thermal equation as a heat source. The main result says that with thermal control, locally distributed within the interior any square integrable in space and time, any finite energy solution can be driven to zero at the time \(T>0\).
