Abstract

Using the Kato theorem for abstract differential equations, the local well-posedness of the solution for a nonlinear dissipative Camassa-Holm equation is established in space 𝐶([0,𝑇),𝐻𝑠(𝑅))𝐶1([0,𝑇),𝐻𝑠1(𝑅)) with 𝑠>3/2. In addition, a sufficient condition for the existence of weak solutions of the equation in lower order Sobolev space 𝐻𝑠(𝑅) with 1𝑠3/2 is developed.
