Abstract

This paper deals with a pseudo-parabolic equation involving variable exponents under Dirichlet boundary value condition. The authors first develop the potential well method to prove a threshold result on the existence and nonexistence of global solutions to the equations when initial energy is less than the mountain pass level $d$. By borrowing the idea from \cite{GW05,XS13} we also show some existence and nonexistence results with high energy initial data. In this case a new characterization for nonexistence of solution is given. These results extend and improve a recent result obtained by Di et al. (2017) \cite{DSP17} and Liao (2019) \cite{Liao19,LGL19}.
