## Abstract in another language

In a series of papers by Annunziato and Borzì, Model Predictive Control of the Fokker-Planck equation has been established as a numerically feasible way for controlling stochastic processes via their probability density functions. Numerical simulations suggest that the resulting controller yields an asymptotically stable closed loop system for optimization horizons looking only one time step into the future. In this paper we provide a formal proof of this fact for the Fokker-Planck equation corresponding to the controlled Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process using an L² cost and control functions which are constant in space. The key step of the proof consists in the verification of an exponential controllability property with respect to the stage cost. Numerical simulations are provided to illustrate our results.
