The BBM equation is a well-known model for long waves in shallow water which was introduced by Benjamin, Bona, and Mahony (, 1972) as an improvement of the Korteweg-de Vries equation (KdV equation) for modeling long waves of small amplitude in two dimensions. Contrasting with the KdV equation, the BBM equation is unstable in high wavenumber components. Further, while the KdV equation has an infinite number of integrals of motion, the BBM equation only has three. For more results on the wellposedness and infinite dimensional dynamical systems for BBM equations, we can refer to [2–7].
In this paper, firstly, we shall study the asymptotic behavior of the non-autonomous BBM equation depending on the small parameter ε, which reflects the rate of fast time oscillations in the term with amplitude of order , then we shall consider the boundedness and convergence of corresponding uniform attractors of (1.1)-(1.3) in contrast to (1.4)-(1.6).

3 Some lemmas
Lemma 3.1 The functions and are taken from the space of translational bounded functions in , then the processes generated by system (1.1)-(1.3) have a uniformly (w.r.t. ) compact attractor for any fixed .
Proof As a similar argument in Section 2, we choose in Theorem 2.4, since and are translational bounded in , then for any fixed , is translational bounded in and we can easily deduce the existence of uniformly compact attractors . □
We can briefly describe the structure of the uniform attractor as follows: if the functions and are translational bounded, problem (1.1)-(1.3) generates the dynamical processes acting on V which is defined by , , where is the solution to (1.1)-(1.3). The processes have a uniformly (w.r.t. ) absorbing set
which is bounded in V for any fixed .
On the other hand, is also bounded in V for each fixed ε since . Assuming , the external force appearing in equation (1.1) belongs to also. Moreover, if and , then
for some and . In this case, to describe the structure of the uniform attractor , we consider the family of equations
For every external force , equation (3.3) generates a class of processes on V, which shares similar properties to those of the processes , corresponding to the original equation (1.1) with the external force . Moreover, the map
Lemma 3.2 If the function in (1.4) is taken from the space of translational bounded functions in , then the processes generated by system (1.4)-(1.6) have a uniformly (w.r.t. ) compact attractor .
Proof Use a similar technique as that in Theorem 2.4, we can easily deduce the existence of a uniformly compact attractor if we choose . □
4 Uniform boundedness of
Firstly, we shall consider the auxiliary linear equation with a non-autonomous external force and give some useful lemmas, and then we shall prove the uniform boundedness of .
Considering the linear equation
we get the following lemma.
Lemma 4.1 Assume that , then problem (4.1) has a unique solution
Moreover, the following inequalities
hold for every and some constant , independent of the initial time .
Proof Firstly, using the Galerkin approximation method, we can deduce the existence of a global solution for (4.1), here we omit the details.
Then multiplying (4.1) by Y and AY respectively, we get
By the Gronwall inequality and Poincaré inequality, we can easily prove the lemma. □
Setting , , , we have the following lemma.
Lemma 4.2 Assume that the formula
holds for some constant , let . Then the solution yields the following problem:
with satisfying the inequality
where is constant independent of K.
Moreover, we also have
Proof Noting that
we can derive the following estimates from (4.8):
From Lemma 2.1, we have
Hence, from the Poincaré inequality, combining (4.12) and (4.4)-(4.5), we conclude that
we deduce that for any ,
Integrating (4.9) with respect to time variable from τ to t, we see that is a solution to the problem
such that from (4.13) and (4.14), we can derive
By virtue of , , , we have
Hence, we conclude
The proof is finished. □
Now, we shall use the auxiliary linear equation and some estimates to prove the uniform boundedness of in V. For convenience, we set
and assume that
holds for some constants .
Theorem 4.3 The attractors of problem (1.1)-(1.3) (or (1.4)-(1.6)) are uniformly (w.r.t. ε) bounded in V, namely,
Proof Let be the solution to (1.1)-(1.3) with the initial data . For , we consider the auxiliary linear equation
From Lemma 4.2, we have the estimate
Setting the function as
which satisfies the problem
Taking the scalar product of (4.28) with w, we obtain
Using the inequality
where λ is the first eigenvalue of −Δ.
Moreover, notice that
and inserting (4.29)-(4.30) into (4.28), we have
which implies that
Therefore using (1.8), we derive from (4.33)-(4.36) that for any ,
Applying Lemma 2.2 with , , , , we have
Recalling that , and using (4.25) and (4.37), we end up with
Thus, for every , the processes have an absorbing set
On the other hand, if , the processes also possess an absorbing set
In conclusion, for every , the set
is an absorbing set for which is independent of ε. Since , (4.24) follows and hence the proof is complete. □
5 Convergence of to
The main result of the paper reads as follows.
Theorem 5.1 Assume that and (4.23) holds. Then the uniform attractor (for problem (1.1)-(1.3)) converges to (for problem (1.4)-(1.6)) as in the following sense:
Next, we shall study the difference of two solutions for (1.1) with and (1.4) with which share the same initial data. Denote
with belonging to the absorbing set which can be found in Section 4. In particular, since , the formula corresponding to
holds for some , as the size of depends on ρ.
Lemma 5.2 For every , , and , the difference
satisfies the estimate
for some positive constants and , both independent of .
Proof Since the difference solves the equation
fulfills the Cauchy problem
where is the solution to (4.25).
Taking an inner product of equation (5.8) with q in H, we obtain
where λ is the first eigenvalue of −Δ, is the upper bound for (by Lemma 3.1) and
thus, it follows from (5.9) and (5.10) that
Noting that , by the Gronwall inequality, we get
Moreover, we can derive the following formulas:
holds for some positive constants . Finally, since , using (4.26) to control , we may obtain
where R is a positive constant. The proof is finished. □
Next, we want to generalize Lemma 5.2 to derive the convergence of corresponding uniform attractors. Let the external force in equation (3.3) as , then satisfies inequality (5.22).
For any , we observe that is a solution to (3.3) with the external force and . For , we investigate the property of the difference
Lemma 5.3 The inequality
holds, here D and R are defined in Lemma 5.2.
Proof As the similar discussion in the proof of Lemma 5.2, replacing , and by , and , respectively, noting that (5.1) still holds for , and the family (), is -continuous, using (5.18) in place of (4.23), we can finally complete the proof of the lemma. □
Proof of Theorem 5.1 For , , we obtain that there exists a complete bounded trajectory of equation (3.3), with some external force
such that .
We choose such that
From the equality
applying Lemma 5.3 with , , we obtain
On the other hand, the set attracts all sets uniformly when . Then, for all , there exists some time which is independent of L such that
Choosing and collecting (5.15)-(5.16), we readily get
Since and is arbitrary, taking the limit , we can prove the theorem. □
