Title: Global attractors for a nonlinear boundary damped wave equation with nonlinear critical source.

Speaker:  Dr. Madhumita Roy

Abstract: In this talk we shall consider a wave model in 3D on a bounded domain which contains nonlinear sources with critical exponent in the interior and nonlinear feedback dissipation on the boundary. Similar models with simpler nonlinear boundary terms have been already studied broadly whereas the generosity of our model is not only the presence of nonlinear damping but also nonlinear boundary source. Boundary actuators are easily accessible to external manipulations-hence feasible from the engineering point of view and practically implementable. On the other hand, the underlying mathematics is challenging. Boundary actions are represented by unbounded, unclosable operators, hence not treatable by perturbation theory(even from the point of view of well-posedness theory.)

Our main result shows that a suitably calibrated boundary damping prevents the blow up of the waves and allows to contain these asymptotically (in time) in a suitable attracting set which is compact.
