The exact internal controllability of the radial solutions of a semilinear heat equation in R is proved. The result applies for nonlinearities that are of an order smaller than |s| logp |s| at infinity for 1 ≤ p < 2. The method of the proof combines HUM and a fixed point technique.

In this paper we prove a unique continuation result for a cascade system of parabolic equations, in which the solution of the first equation is (partially) used as a forcing term for the second equation. As a consequence we prove the existence of -insensitizing controls for some parabolic equations when the control region and the observability region do not intersect.

We study the exact boundary controllability of two coupled one dimensional wave equations with a control acting only in one equation. The problem is transformed into a moment problem. This framework has been used in control theory of distributed parameter systems since the classical works of A.G. Butkovsky, H.O. Fattorini and D.L. Russell in the late 1960s to the early 1970s. We use recent results on the Riesz basis property of exponential divided differences.
