Abstract

This paper is concerned with investigating the spatial behavior of solutions for a class of hyperbolic equations in semi-infinite cylindrical domains, where nonlinear dissipative boundary conditions imposed on the lateral surface of the cylinder. The main tool used is the weighted energy method.
