The initial boundary value problem for a class of hyperbolic equation with nonlinear dissipative term utt-i=1n(/xi)(|u/xi|p-2(u/xi))+a|ut|q-2ut=b|u|r-2u in a bounded domain is studied. The existence of global solutions for this problem is proved by constructing a stable set in W01,p(Ω) and show the asymptotic behavior of the global solutions through the use of an important lemma of Komornik.
