Abstract

We study the controllability problem for the one-dimensional Euler isentropic system, both in Eulerian and Lagrangian coordinates, by means of boundary controls, in the context of weak entropy solutions. We give a sufficient condition on the initial and final states under which the first one can be steered to the latter.
