In this project questions related to stabilization of vibrating system by feedback were studied. A vibrating system is uniformly stabilized by a feedback if there is a uniform rate of decay for all vibrational modes of the closed-loop system, which is the system with feedback. Necessary conditions were found for certain kinds of feedback to uniformly stabilize a system which is originally undamped and has the feedback applied at the boundary. Sufficient conditions were found for the feedback to lead to a closed-loop system which is mathematically well-posed. It was also shown that in a large class of systems which are stabilized by feedback, if a small delay is introduced in the computation of the feedback, then the stability of the closed-loop system is destroyed.
