The existence and uniqueness of global solutions to a mathematical model for shape memory alloys. (English) Zbl 0841.73032
Summary: This paper deals with the well-posedness of a mathematical model for the vibration of a thin wire composed of a shape memory alloy. The existence and uniqueness of global solutions in both cases of Neumann and Dirichlet boundary conditions for the absolute temperature $$\theta$$ are investigted.
