Gagliardo-Nirenberg interpolation inequalities relate Lebesgue norms of iterated derivatives of a function. We present a generalization of these inequalities in which the low-order term of the right-hand side is replaced by a Lebesgue norm of a pointwise product of derivatives of the function.

We derive a priori bounds on the size of the structure constants of the free Lie algebra over a set of indeterminates, relative to its Hall bases. We investigate their asymptotic growth, especially as a function of the length of the involved Lie brackets.
First, using the classical recursive decomposition algorithm, we obtain a rough upper bound va...

We propose a unified approach to determine and prove obstructions to small-time local controllability of scalar-input control systems. Our approach relies on a recent Magnus-type representation formula of the state, a new Hall basis of the free Lie algebra over two generators and an appropriate use of Sussmann's infinite product to compute the Magn...

We prove existence and uniqueness of strong solutions of the equation $u u_x - u_{yy} = f$ in the vicinity of the linear shear flow, subject to perturbations of the source term and lateral boundary conditions. Since the solutions we consider have opposite signs in the lower and upper half of the domain, this is a forward-backward parabolic problem,...

Explicit formulas expressing the solution to non-autonomous differential equations are of great importance in many application domains such as control theory or numerical operator splitting. In particular, intrinsic formulas allowing to decouple time-dependent features from geometry-dependent features of the solution have been extensively studied....

We consider the 2D incompressible Navier-Stokes equation in a rectangle with the usual no-slip boundary condition prescribed on the upper and lower boundaries. We prove that for any positive time, for any finite energy initial data, there exist controls on the left and right boundaries and a distributed force, which can be chosen arbitrarily small...

This note echoes the talk given by the second author during the Journ\'ees EDP 2018 in Obernai. Its aim is to provide an overview and a sketch of proof of the result obtained by the authors, concerning the controllability of the Navier-Stokes equation. We refer the interested readers to the original paper for the full technical details of the proof...

We consider scalar-input control systems in the vicinity of an equilibrium, at which the linearized systems are not controllable. For finite dimensional control systems, the authors recently classified the possible quadratic behaviors. Quadratic terms introduce coercive drifts in the dynamics, quantified by integer negative Sobolev norms, which are...

The present paper is about a famous extension of the Prandtl equation, the so-called Interactive Boundary Layer model (IBL). This model has been used intensively in the numerics of steady boundary layer flows, and compares favorably to the Prandtl one, especially past separation. We consider here the unsteady version of the IBL, and study its linea...

We investigate the small-time local controllability of systems in the vicinity of an equilibrium. Given a small time, an initial data and a final data close from the equilibrium, is it possible to find a control (a source term) that guides the solution from the initial state to the wished final state at the given time? The natural method is to star...

We consider nonlinear scalar-input differential control systems in the vicinity of an equilibrium. When the linearized system at the equilibrium is controllable, the nonlinear system is smoothly small-time locally controllable, i.e., whatever $m>0$ and $T>0$, the state can reach a whole neighborhood of the equilibrium at time $T$ with controls arbi...

In this proceeding we expose a particular case of a recent result obtained by the authors regarding the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in a smooth bounded and simply connected bounded domain, either in 2D or in 3D, with a Navier slip-with-friction boundary condition except on a part of the boundary. This under-determination encodes that one...

In this work, we investigate the small-time global exact controllability of the Navier-Stokes equation, both towards the null equilibrium state and towards weak trajectories. We consider a viscous incompressible fluid evolving within a smooth bounded domain, either in 2D or in 3D. The controls are only located on a small part of the boundary, inter...

Cette thèse est consacrée à l’étude du contrôle de quelques équations aux dérivées partielles non linéaires issues de la mécanique des fluides. On s’intéresse notamment à l’équation de Burgers et à l’équation de Navier-Stokes. L’objectif principal est de démontrer des résultats de contrôle globaux en temps petit y compris en présence de couches lim...

In this work, we are interested in the small time local null controllability
for the viscous Burgers' equation $y_t - y_{xx} + y y_x = u(t)$ on the line
segment $[0,1]$, with null boundary conditions. The second-hand side is a
scalar control playing a role similar to that of a pressure. In this setting,
the classical Lie bracket necessary condition...

In this work, we are interested in the small time global null controllability
for the viscous Burgers' equation y_t - y_xx + y y_x = u(t) on the line segment
[0,1]. The second-hand side is a scalar control playing a role similar to that
of a pressure. We set y(t,1) = 0 and restrict ourselves to using only two
controls (namely the interior one u(t)...
