Energy Decay for the Solutions of a Coupled Wave System

C.A. Raposo, W.D. Bastos


In this work we establish existence, uniqueness and exponential decay of energy for the solutions of a system of wave equations coupled with locally distributed damping in a bounded smooth domain of any space dimension.
