A NONLINEAR TRANSMISSION PROBLEM WITH TIME DEPENDENT COEFFICIENTS
˜ EUGENIO CABANILLAS LAPA, JAIME E. MUNOZ RIVERA

Abstract. In this article, we consider a nonlinear transmission problem forthe wave equation with time dependent coeﬃcients and linear internal damping. We prove the existence of a global solution and its exponential decay. The result is achieved by using the multiplier technique and suitable unique continuation theorem for the wave equation.

1. Introduction In this work, we consider the transmission problem ρ1 utt − buxx + f1 (u) = 0 u(0, t) = v(L, t), u(L0 , t) = v(L0, t),

where ρ1 , ρ2 are constants; α, b are positive constants, f, g are nonlinear functions and a(x,t) is a positive function. Controllability and Stability for transmission problem has been studied by many authors (see for example Lions [7], Lagnese [5], Liu and Williams [8], Mu˜oz Rivera and Portillo Oquendo [9], Andrade, Fatori and n Mu˜oz Rivera [1]). n The goal of this work is to study the existence and uniqueness of global solutions of (1.1)-(1.6) and the asymptotic behavior of the energy.All the authors mentioned above established their results with constant coeﬃcients. To the best of our knowledge this is a ﬁrst publication on transmission problem with time dependent coeﬃcients and the nonlinear terms. In general,the dependence on spatial and time variables causes diﬃculties,semigroups arguments are not suitable for ﬁnding solutions to (1.1)-(1.6); therefore,we make use of aGalerkin’s process. Note that the time-dependent coeﬃcient also appear in the second boundary condition, thus there are some technical diﬃculties that we need to overcome. To prove the exponential decay, the main diﬃculty is that the dissipation only

We conclude this section with the following lemma which will play essential role when establishing the asymptotic behavior of solutions. Lemma 2.1 ([2, Lemma 9.1]). Let E : R+ → R+ be a non-increasing function and 0 0 assume that there exist two constants p > 0 and c > 0 such that
