About Asymptotic Behavior for a Transmission Problem in Hyperbolic Thermoelasticity

  • Jaime E. Muñoz Rivera
  • Maria Grazia Naso


We consider a transmission problem in thermoelasticity with memory. We show the exponential decay of the solution in case of radially symmetric situations, as time goes to infinity.
