On the uniqueness and large time behavior of the weak solutions to a shallow water equation. (English) Zbl 1034.35115

The authors deal with the uniqueness and larger time behaviour of weak solutions to the Cauchy problems for the following one-dimensional shallow water equation \[ \begin{cases} \partial_t u+u\partial_x u+\partial_xP=0,\;t>0,\;x\in\mathbb{R}^1\\ P(t,x)=\tfrac 12 \int^\infty_{-\infty} e^{-| x-y|} \Bigl(u^2+\tfrac 12 (\partial_x u)^2\Bigr) (t,y)dy\\ u(0,x)=u_0(x)\in H^1(\mathbb{R}^1),\end{cases} \] which is formally equivalent to the Camass-Holm equation \[ \partial_tu-\partial_x^2 \partial_tu+ 3u\partial_x u=2\partial_x u\partial_x^2u+u \partial_x^3u. \] Moreover, the authors show that the admissible weak solutions (under some additional condition on the solutions) tend to 0 pointwisely as \(t\to\infty\).
