  • Wave equation, displacement depending damping coefficient, weak and strong attractors


A weakly damped wave equation in the three-dimensional (3-D) space with a damping coefficient depending on the displacement is studied. This equation is shown to generate a dissipative semigroup in the energy phase space, which possesses finite-dimensional global and exponential attractors in a slightly weaker topology.
