### Abstract

The authors consider the asymptotic behavior of solutions of the quasilinear hyperbolic equation with linear damping U_{tt} + u_{t} -div (a(∇_{u}) ∇_{u}) = 0, and show that, at least when n ≤ 3, they tend, as t → +∞, to those of the nonlinear parabolic equation v_{t} - div (a( ∇_{v}) ∇_{v}) = 0, in the sense that the norm ∥u(.,t) - v(., t)∥L∞(R^{n}) of the difference u - v decays faster than that of either u or v. This provides another example of the diffusion phenomenon of nonlinear hyperbolic waves, first observed by Hsiao, L. and Liu Taiping (see [1, 2]).
