On the ultimate energy bound of solutions to some forced second-order evolution equations with a general nonlinear damping operator

Alain Haraux

Vol. 1 (2019), No. 1, 59–72

Under suitable growth and coercivity conditions on the nonlinear damping operator g which ensure nonresonance, we estimate the ultimate bound of the energy of the general solution to the equation ü(t) + Au(t) + g(u̇(t)) = h(t), t + , where A is a positive selfadjoint operator on a Hilbert space H and h is a bounded forcing term with values in H. In general the bound is of the form C(1 + h4), where h stands for the L norm of h with values in H and the growth of g does not seem to play any role. If g behaves like a power for large values of the velocity, the ultimate bound has quadratic growth with respect to h and this result is optimal. If h is antiperiodic, we obtain a much lower growth bound and again the result is shown to be optimal even for scalar ODEs.
