  • Strongly damped wave equation, critical and supercritical growths, compact global attractors, regularity


This paper is concerned with the semilinear strongly damped wave equation $$ptt u-Delta pt u-Delta u+varphi(u)=f.$$ The existence of compact global attractors of optimal regularity is proved for nonlinearities $varphi$ of critical and supercritical growth.
