Abstract : The objective of this research is to develop a theory of controllability for parabolic and second order hyperbolic systems and for hereditary differential systems. An attempt is made to use abstract semi-group theory and spectral theory to develop the necessary results. It is proposed to apply these ideas to the stabilization problem of high speed aircrafts in the presence of severe gust load disturbances. (Author)
