Abstract: Oil well drilling involves many distributed parameter control problems, from the hydraulic transport of oil & gas to the propagation of mechanical vibrations. These require developing tools to analyze stability, boundary estimation and boundary stabilization for the underlying dynamics, which are governed by hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations. In this talk, I will give an overview of the state-of-the-art results in control theory for such systems and discuss their applicability to the industrial challenges mentioned above.
