# A family of potential wells for a wave equation

• Received: 01 March 2020 Revised: 01 April 2020
• Primary: 35L05, 35A01, 35B44

• In this paper, a family of potential wells are introduced by means of the modified depths of the potential wells. These potential wells are employed to study the initial-boundary value problem for a wave equation. The expression of the depths of the potential wells is derived. Global existence and finite time blow-up of weak solutions with the subcritical initial energy and the critical initial energy are obtained, respectively. Moreover, some numerical simulations of the depths of the potential wells are carried out.
