# Dissipativity of a conserved phase-field system with memory

• We analyze a conserved phase-field system, characterized by heat memory terms: memory kernels $a$ and $b$ account for relaxation effects in the energy constitutive equation and in the Gurtin-Pipkin heat conduction law, respectively. This model consists of a hyperbolic integrodifferential equation for the temperature $\theta$ coupled with a nonlinear fourth order evolution equation for the phase variable $\chi$. With appropriate initial and boundary data, we prove that the system can be interpreted as a process. We show that it possesses an absorbing set, under three -thermodynamically consistent- conditions on the memory kernel $a$.
