Abstract

In this paper, we prove the global null controllability of the linear heat equation completed with linear Fourier boundary conditions of the form y n + β y = 0 . We consider distributed controls with support in a small set and nonregular coefficients β = β ( x , t ) . For the proof of null controllability, a crucial tool will be a new Carleman estimate for the weak solutions of the classical heat equation with nonhomogeneous Neumann boundary conditions.
