Can one drive a system towards any desired state by acting merely on some of its parameters? I plan to discuss this question in the context of mathematical fluid dynamics, and to present a recent joint work with Vahagn Nersesyan (NYU Shanghai) where we regulate incompressible Navier–Stokes flows via controls that are both physically localized and finitely decomposable.


Manuel Rissel obtained his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in September 2022, under the supervision of Professor Ya-Guang Wang, and subsequently joined NYU Shanghai as postdoctoral instructor of mathematics. His research explores controllability properties and other qualitative aspects of nonlinear partial differential equations arising from mathematical physics, including the Navier-Stokes system and magnetohydrodynamics.
