Our recent contributions in this area are inspired in the interpretation of memory models as the **coupling of PDEs with infinite-dimensional ODEs**. The presence of ODE components in the system explains the failure of controllability if the control is confined on a space-support which is time-independent. This motivates the use of our **moving control strategy**, making the control move covering the whole domain, introducing the transport effects that the ODE is lacking.

#### Controllability of a Class of Infinite Dimensional Systems with Age Structure

In this tutorial, we investigate the linear infinite dimensional system obtained by implementing an age structure to a given linear dynamical system. We show that if the initial system is null controllable in a time small enough, then the age structured system is also null controllable in a time depending on the various involved parameters.

#### Finite Element approximation of the one-dimensional fractional Laplacian

We describe a FE method for the approximation of the one-dimensional fractional Laplacian $(-d_x^2)^s$ on a uniform mesh discretizing the symmetric interval $(-L,L)$, $L>0$.

#### A numerical method for solving an age structured virus model

We consider an age-structured HIV infection model with a general nonlinear infection function. The numerical method to solve this system of equation is based on the upwind method for solving hyperbolic partial differential equation and the ODEs are solving by explicit Euler method.

The aim of this tutorial is to give a numerical method for solving a partial differential equation with a constant delay.
