In this talk, we will present some results on global classical solution to the two-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations with density-dependent of viscosity, which is the shear viscosity is a positive constant and the bulk viscosity is of the type $\r^\b$ with $\b>\frac43$. This model was first studied by Kazhikhov and Vaigant who proved the global well-posedness of the classical solution in periodic case with $\b> 3$ and the initial data is away from vacuum. Here we consider the Cauchy problem and the initial data may be large and vacuum is permmited. Weighted stimates are applied to prove the main results.
