Exponential decay of solutions of damped nonlinear hyperbolic equations. (English) Zbl 0656.35091

We consider the asymptotic behaviour of solutions to some nonlinear hyperbolic equations with linear damping of the following type \[ (1)\quad u''(t)+Au'(t)+(\alpha +m(| A^{1/2}u(t)|^ 2))Au(t)+\beta A^ 2u(t)=0. \] Here \(\alpha\),\(\beta\geq 0\), A is a selfadjoint and positive operator in a (real) Hilbert space H. The nonnegative function m defined on [0,\(\infty)\) describes the nonlinear effects; m is nondecreasing and \(m(0)=0\).
