In this article we apply the optimal and the robust control theory to the sine-Gordon equation. In our case the control is given by the boundary conditions and we work in a finite time horizon. We present at the beginning the optimal control problem and we derive a necessary condition of optimality and we continue by formulating a robust control problem for which existence and uniqueness of solutions are derived.
