Abstract

We study the Dirichlet problem for the degenerate parabolic equation of the Kirchhoff type \[ u_{t}-a\left(\ u\ _{L^{p}(\Omega)}^{p}\right)\sum\limits_{i=1}^{n}D_{i}\left( \left\vert u\right\vert ^{p-2}D_{i}u\right) +b\left( x,t,u\right)=f\left( x,t\right) \quad \text{in $Q_T=\Omega \times (0,T)$}, \] where $p\geq2$, $T>0$, $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^{n}$, $n\geq 2$, is a smooth bounded domain. The coefficient $a(\cdot)$ is real-valued function defined on $\mathbb{R}_+$ and $b(\cdot,\cdot,\tau)$ is a measurable function with variable nonlinearity in $\tau$. We prove existence of weak solutions of the considered problem under appropriate and general conditions on $a$ and $b$. Sufficient conditions for uniqueness are found and in the case $f\equiv0$ the decay rates for $\ u\ _{L^2(\Omega)}$ are obtained.
