In this paper we shall study the boundary control and stabilization of nonlinear wave systems which are controlled by viscoelastic dampers on the boundary. This requires the use of fractional derivatives and a recent 'iteration' technique for converting nonlinear problems into a sequence of time-varying linear ones. We shall use the theory of evolution operators on Hilbert space and obtain an abstract setting for the problem.
