We consider an open bounded set Ωn and a family {K(t)}t0 of orthogonal matrices of n. Set Ωt={xn;x=K(t)y,for all yΩ}, whose boundary is Γt. We denote by Q^ the noncylindrical domain given by Q^=0<t<T{Ωt×{t}}, with the regular lateral boundary Σ^=0<t<T{Γt×{t}}. In this paper we investigate the boundary exact controllability for the linear Schrödinger equation uiΔu=f in Q^(i2=1), u=w on Σ^, u(x,0)=u0(x) in Ω0, where w is the control.
