abstract = {
Motivated by two recent works of Micu and Zuazua and
Cabanillas, De Menezes and Zuazua,
we study the null controllability of the heat equation
in unbounded domains, typically $\mathbb R_+$ or $\mathbb R^N$.
Considering an unbounded and disconnected control region of the form
$\omega := \cup _n \omega _n$, we prove two null controllability results:
under some technical assumption on the control parts $\omega _n$, we prove
that every initial datum in some weighted L2 space can be controlled to zero by usual control functions, and every initial datum in L2(Ω) can be controlled to zero using
control functions in a weighted L2 space.
At last we give several examples in which
the control region has a finite measure and
our null controllability results apply.
