Decay results for viscoelastic diffusion equations in absence of instantaneous elasticity

Mohammad Kafini

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.
