Exact boundary controllability for the Korteweg-de Vries equation on a bounded domain. (English) Zbl 0873.93008

The author proves a controllability result for the nonlinear Korteweg-de Vries equation on bounded domains for sufficiently small initial and final states. He uses the Banach contraction fixed point theorem and the corresponding controllability result for the linear equation. For the linear case, the author uses the Hilbert Uniqueness Method and the multiplier method.
