In this article we study the existence of weak solutions for the nonlinear initial boundary value problem of the Kirchhoff equation utt + Δ2u + M(∥∇u∥2) (-Δu) + ut = u ln |u|2, in Ω x (0, T), u(x, 0) = u0(x), ut(x, 0) = u1(x), x ∈ Ω, u(x, t) = ∂u/∂η (x, t) = 0, x ∈ ∂Ω, t ≥ 0, where Ω is a bounded domain in ℝ2 with smooth boundary ∂Ω, T > 0 is a fixed but arbitrary real number, M(s) is a continuous function on [0, +∞) and η is the unit outward normal on ∂Ω. Our results are obtained using the Galerkin method, compactness approach, potential well corresponding to the logarithmic nonlinearity, and the energy estimates due to Nakao.
