General decay in viscoelasticity: A recent development

In this talk we discuss the following viscoelastic equation


where math2 is Cnon increasing function. We first give an account of the existing results and then establish a new general decay rate for the solution energy of the problem under a more general condition on the relaxation function of the form

where math4is a strictly positive non increasing function and math5
This work answers some questions raised in the literature and generalizes and improves earlier results.
