Application of Moser’s method to a certain type of evolution equations. (English) Zbl 0547.35081

The author constructs periodic solutions of a nonlinear damped equation similar to a wave equation where the nonlinearity occurs in the highest derivatives but the nonlinear term is multiplied by a small parameter. She does this by using the Nash-Moser theory to reduce the problem to a one-dimensional problem. She obtains a useful lemma for verifying the assumptions of the Nash-Moser theory.
