On the boundary control of Kirchhoff's nonlinear string
In this paper we propose two new classes of controllers which stabilize Kirchhoff's nonlinear string by using boundary control techniques. We assume that the boundary displacement is the only available measurement. The classes of controllers proposed in this paper are related to the positive real controllers. One of the classes generalizes a special class of such stabilizing controllers which is already proposed in the literature and the other one is new.
