### Numerical controllability of the wave equation through primal methods and Carleman estimates

This paper deals with the numerical computation of boundary null controls for the 1D wave equation with a potential. The goal is to compute approximations of controls that drive the solution from a prescribed initial state to zero at a large enough controllability time. We do not apply in this work the usual duality arguments but explore instead a direct approach in the framework of global Carleman estimates. More precisely, we consider the control that minimizes over the class of admissible null...
