#### Abstract

Solutions and weakly compact uniform attractor for the nonautonomous long-short wave equations with translation compact forces were studied in a bounded domain. We first established the existence and the uniqueness of the solution to the system by using Galerkin method and then obtained the uniform absorbing set and the weakly compact uniform attractor of the problem by applying techniques of constructing skew product flow in the extended phase space.

#### 1. Introduction

The long wave-short wave (LS) resonance equations arise in the study of the interaction of the surface waves with both gravity and capillary modes presence and also in the analysis of internal waves, as well as Rossby wave [1]. In the plasma physics they describe the resonance of the high-frequency electron plasma oscillation and the associated low-frequency ion density perturbation [2]. Benney [3] presents a general theory for the interaction between the short wave and the long wave.

Due to their rich physical and mathematical properties the long wave-short wave resonance equations have drawn much attention of many physicists and mathematicians. For one-dimensional propagation of waves, there are many studies on this interaction. Guo [4, 5] obtains the existence of global solution for long-short wave equations and generalized long-short wave equations, respectively. The existence of global attractor was studied in [6–8]. The orbital stability of solitary waves for this system has been studied in [9]. In [10], Guo investigated the asymptotic behavior of solutions for the long-short wave equations with zero order dissipation in . The approximation inertial manifolds for LS type equations have been studied in [11]. The well posedness of the Cauchy problem for the long wave-short wave resonance equations was studied in [8, 12–17].

In this paper, nonautonomous LS equations with translation compact forces were studied. The essential difference between nonautonomous systems and autonomous ones is that the former get much influenced by the time-depended external forces, which breaks semigroup property of the flow or semiflow created by autonomous systems. Also, attractors of nonautonomous systems are no longer invariable; they change with the changing of the initial time. This makes it impossible for us to consider nonautonomous systems completely in the same way of autonomous ones. Fortunately, Chepyzhov and Vishik [18, 19] developed techniques by which skills in the study of autonomous systems can be used in dealing with nonautonomous problems. Their central idea is that constructing skew product flow in extended phase space is obtained by where is a family of processes, is a translation semigroup, and the flow can be proved to be a semigroup under some preconditions, such as the translation identity and -continuity of , and more importantly, the compactness of the symbol space . By this means, we can get the uniform attractor by projecting the global attractor of to the phase space if the latter exists. We consider the following nonautonomous dissipative generalized long-short wave equations: with the initial conditions and the boundary value conditions where . . Nonautonomous terms and are time-depended external forces, which are supposed to be translation compact (cf. [18] or Assumption 1). Nonlinear terms and are given smooth and real, satisfying where , , , and constants , , and are given in for .

Our aim here is, firstly, to get the unique existence of solutions for problem (2)~(5) and then to derive the existence of weakly compact uniform attractor for it with the above-mentioned method. Here, and throughout this paper, uniform means uniform about symbols () in symbol space () unless there is special explanation. In fact, it is the same if we say uniform about the initial time, since the translation identity and the -continuity of hold in our case (cf. [20]).

Throughout this paper, we denote by the norm of with usual inner product , denote by the norm of for all , and denote by the norm of a usual Sobolev space for all . And we denote different constants by a same letter , and represents that the constant relies only on the parameters appearing in the brackets.

This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we recall some facts about the nonautonomous system. In Section 3, we provide the uniform a priori estimates in time. In Section 4, we obtain the unique existence of the solutions for problem (2)~(5) by Galerkin method. Section 5 contains the weakly compact uniform attractor for the nonautonomous system (2)~(5), and in the proof of Theorem 13, the -continuity of is proved.

#### 3. Uniform a Priori Estimates in Time

In this section, we derive uniform a priori estimates in time which enable us to show the existence of solutions and the uniform attractor. First we recall the following interpolation inequality (cf. [21]).
