# Global well-posedness for a fourth order pseudo-parabolic equation with memory and source terms

• In this paper, we consider the initial boundary value problem for a fourth order pseudo-parabolic equation with memory and source terms. Under suitable assumptions on the function $g$, the initial data and the parameters in the equation, we not only prove the existence of global weak solutions by the combination of the Galerkin method and potential well theory, but also establish an explicit decay rate estimate of the energy adopting the ideas of Marcelo M. Cavalcanti et al. (J. Differ. Equations 203 (2004) 119-158) and Patrick Martinez (ESAIN: Control Optim. Calc. Var. 4 (1999) 419-444). Furthermore, the finite time blow up results for the solutions with both positive and negative initial energy are obtained under certain conditions.
