### Single input controllability of a simplified fluid-structure interaction model

In this paper we study a controllability problem for a simplified one dimensional model for the motion of a rigid body in a viscous fluid. The control variable is the velocity of the fluid at one end. One of the novelties brought in with respect to the existing literature consists in the fact that we use a single scalar control. Moreover, we introduce a new methodology, which can be used for other nonlinear parabolic systems, independently of the techniques previously used for the linearized problem....
