### Abstract

We derive a precise decay estimate of the solutions to the initial-boundary value problem for the wave equation with a dissipation: u_{tt} - Δu + a(cursive Greek chi)u_{t} = 0 in Ω × [0, ∞) with the boundary condition u|∂Ω = 0, where a(cursive Greek chi) is a nonnegative function on Ω̄ satisfying a(cursive Greek chi) > 0 a.e. cursive Greek chi ∈ ω and ∫ω1/a(cursive Greek chi)^{p}dcursive Greek chi < ∞ for some 0 < p < 1 for an open set ω ⊂ Ω̄ including a part of ∂Ω with a specific property. The result is applied to prove a global existence and decay of smooth solutions for a semilinear wave equation with such a weak dissipation.
