## Decay of solutions of the wave equation with localized nonlinear damping and trapped rays

 1 Yangtze Center of Mathematics, Sichuan University, Chengdu 610064

Received  November 2010 Revised  April 2011 Published  June 2011

We prove some decay estimates of the energy of the wave equation governed by localized nonlinear dissipations in a bounded domain in which trapped rays may occur. The approach is based on a comparison with the linear damped wave equation and an interpolation argument. Our result extends to the nonlinear damped wave equation the well-known optimal logarithmic decay rate for the linear damped wave equation with regular initial data.
