ABSTRACT The goal of this paper is to study an output stabilization problem: the gradient stabilization for linear distributed systems. Firstly, we give definitions and properties of the gradient stability. Then we characterize controls which stabilize the gradient of the state. We also give the stabilizing control which minimizes a performance given cost. The obtained results are illustrated by simulations in the case of one-dimensional distributed systems.
