Abstract

We prove the existence and uniqueness of global solutions to the mixed problem for the Carrier equation $$ u_{tt} - M(\int_{\Omega} u^{2}\, dx ) \Delta u + g(u_{t}) = f, $$ where $g^{\prime}(s) \geq 0, \, 0 < m_{0} \leq M(\lambda)$ and no "smallness" conditions are imposed on the initial data. Moreover, the algebraic and exponential decays of the energy are proved.
