In this article we apply the optimal and
the robust control theory to the sine-Gordon equation. In our case
the control is given by the boundary conditions and we work in a finite
time horizon. We present at the beginning the optimal control problem
and we derive a necessary condition of optimality and we continue by
formulating a robust control problem for which existence and uniqueness
of solutions are derived.
