1 INTRODUCTION

This note explores an approach to global stabilization of boundary controlled nonlinear PDEs by a technique inspired by finite dimensional back-stepping/ feedback linearization. Solution of the problem presented herein would be of enormous significance because these are the only truly constructive and systematic techniques in finite dimension.

We consider nonlinear parabolic PDEs of the form
