Global existence and blow up of solutions for some hyperbolic systems with damping and source terms. (English) Zbl 1082.35100

The paper deals with the initial boundary value problem to the system \[ u_{tt}-(a+b\| \nabla u\| _2^2+b\| \nabla v\| _2^2)\triangle u+g(u_t)=\mu _1f(u) \]
\[ v_{tt}-(a+b\| \nabla u\| _2^2+b\| \nabla v\| _2^2)\triangle v+g(v_t)=\mu _2h(v). \] In the case of small initial data, the existence (for \(a+b>0\)) and uniqueness (for \(a>0\)) of global regular and weak solutions to the problem are proved. If the function \(g\) is linear and \(f,h\) are of a special form, blow up of a solution is proved and its lifespan is estimated.
