Egorov’s theorem in the Weyl-Hörmander calculus and application to the control of PDEs

It is known that geometric optics can be derived as the high-frequency limit of the wave equation, from both experimental and theoretical perspectives. This fact can be regarded as an instance of a “quantum-classical correspondence principle”, made rigorous by Egorov’s theorem, which relates the evolution of a linear PDE (e.g. the wave equation) to the natural underlying classical dynamics (e.g. the geodesic flow).

We will present a version of Egorov’s theorem in the Euclidean space, in the setting of the “Weyl-Hörmander calculus”. This general framework of microlocal analysis involves Riemannian metrics on the phase space adapted to the dynamics under consideration, and allows for a fairly large range of applications (study of Schrödinger, wave and transport equations).

If time allows, we will discuss in more detail an application to the observability of the Schrödinger equation with a confining potential in the Euclidean space.
