Adaptive stabilization for a Kirchhoff-type nonlinear beam under boundary output feedback control. (English) Zbl 1107.35088

The authors consider a Kirchhoff-type nonlinear beam system with one end fixed and boundary control force applied at the other end. Using a constructive Galerkin approximation scheme, the existence and uniqueness of the classical solution for the system is proved. Then by an energy multiplier method, the exponential stability that is dependent on initial data is shown.
