The modeling, analysis and control of fluid-structure interactions is a subject with important applications in areas as aircraft engeneering, noise control or combustion theory. The existing literature contains mainly finite -dimensional models or numerical study of infinite-dimensional models. In PDE-based models the system to be studied couples different dynamics (elliptic-hyperbolic, parabolic-hyperbolic or rigid body-hyperbolic). Moreover, in some cases, we have a free boundary value problem, as the deformation of the structure (and consequently the domain occupied by the fluid) is unknown. This is why the study of the wellposedness and control properties requires new mathematical methods. The speakers in this minisymposium will present appropriate mathematical methods to solve the difficulties mentioned above, at least for some simple models. They will discuss possible extensions and open problems.
