Consider the mixed problem with Dirichelet condition associated to the wave equation , where the scalar metric periodic in t and uniformly equal to 1 outside a compact set in x, on a T-periodic domain. Let be the associated propagator. Assuming that the perturbations are non-trapping, we prove the meromorphic continuation of the cut-off resolvent of the Floquet operator and we establish sufficient conditions for local energy decay.

Keywords and Phrases: time-dependent perturbation, moving obstacle, local energy decay, wave equation.


Considere el problema mixto con condiciones de Dirichlet asociadas a la ecuación de onda , donde la metrica escalar a(t; x) es T-periódica en t y uniformemente igual a 1 fuera de un conjunto compacto en x, sobre un dominio T-periodico. Sea U(t,0) el propagador asociado. Asumiendo que las perturbaciones son non-trapping, probamos la continuacióon meromorfa de la resolvente de corte del operador de Floquet U(T, 0) y establecemos condiciones suficientes para la decadencia local de energía.
