1. Introduction

G. Caginalp introduced in [1] the following phase-field system

(1)

(2)

where u is the order parameter and is the (relative) temperature. These equations model phase transition processes such as melting-solidification processes and have been studied, see [2] - [6] , for a similar phase-field model with a nonlinear term.

These Cahn-Hilliard phase-fiel system are known as the conserved phase-field system (see [7] - [9] ) based on type III heat conduction and with two temperatures (see [10] ). The authors have proved the existence and the uniqueness of the solutions, the existence of global attractor and of exponential attractors with singularly or regular potentials.

In [11] , Ntsokongo and Batangouna have studied the following Cahn-Hilliard phase- field system

(4)

where, u is the order parameter and is the (relative) temperature, they have proved the existence and the uniqueness solution with Dirichlet boundary condition and regular potentials.

In this paper, we consider the following Cahn-Hilliard hyperbolic phase-fiel system

(8)

which is the perturbed phase-field system of Cahn-Hilliard phase-field system (3)-(4) with. In the above hyperbolic system is a bounded and regular domain of with or 3 and f is the nonlinear regular potentials.

The hyperbolic system has been extensively studied for Dirichlet boundary conditions and regular or singular potentials (see [12] - [14] ). Whose certain have to end at existence of global attractor or at the existence of exponential attractors (see [15] ).

In this paper we prove the existence and the uniqueness of solutions of (5)-(8). We consider the regular potential which satisfies the following properties:

boundary conditions. More generally, denote the norm of Banach space X.

Throughout this paper, the same letters and denote (generally positive) constants which may change from line to line, or even a same line.

3. A Priori Estimates

4. Existence and Uniqueness of Solutions

Theorem 4.1. (Existence) We assume then the system (5) - (8) possesses at least one solution such that

The proof is based on a priori estimates obtained in the previous section and on a standard Galerkin scheme.

We deduce the continuous dependence of the solution relative to the initial conditions, hence the uniqueness of the solution.

The existence and uniqueness of the solution of problem (5)-(8) being proven in a larger space, we will seek the solution with more regularity.
