Exponential stabilization of a viscoelastic wave equation with dynamic boundary conditions

  • A. Khemmoudj
  • L. Seghour


In this paper, we study the stabilization of a semi-linear viscoelastic wave equation subject to semi-linear and dynamical boundary conditions. The kernels used are of strongly positive definite type. We prove that internal and boundary memory damping are strong enough, via transmission process (\({u|_{\Gamma} = v}\)), to stabilize the whole system.
