Stabilization of Second Order Evolution Equations by a Class of Unbounded Feedbacks

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2124)


In this chapter we consider second order evolution equations with unbounded feedbacks. Under a regularity assumption we show that observability properties for the undamped problem imply decay estimates for the damped problem. We consider both uniform and non uniform decay properties.
