We establish the existence theorem and study the long time behaviour of the following PDE problem:
where W is a specially given quasiconvex double-well function and is a given function independent of time t. In particular, the existence theorem is established for general given source term f, the long time behaviour is analyzed under the assumption that .
The system is an evolutionary quasimonotone system. We believe that the existence of solutions established here is stronger than the usual Young Measure solution and is the first of its kind. The existence of a compact ω-limit set as is also established under some non-restrictive conditions.
