On the controllability of linear parabolic equations with an arbitrary control location for stratified media. (English) Zbl 1115.35055
Summary: We prove a null controllability result with an arbitrary control location in dimension greater than or equal to two for a class of linear parabolic operators with non-smooth coefficients. The coefficients are assumed to be smooth in all but one directions.
