Title: Decay results for viscoelastic diffusion equations in absence of
instantaneous elasticity
Author: Mohammad Kafini (KFUPM, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia)
Abstract:
We study the diffusion equation in the absence of instantaneous elasticity
$$
u_t-\int_0^{t}g(t-\tau )\Delta u(\tau )\,d\tau =0,\quad (x,t)\in \Omega
\times (0,+\infty ),
$$
where $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^n$, subjected to nonlinear
boundary conditions. We prove that if the relaxation function
g decays exponentially, then the solutions is exponential stable.
