Uniqueness and time oscillating behaviour of finite points blow-up solutions of the fast diffusion equation

  • Kin Ming Hui (a1)


Let n ⩾ 3 and 0 < m < (n − 2)/n. We extend the results of Vazquez and Winkler (2011, J. Evol. Equ. 11, no. 3, 725–742) and prove the uniqueness of finite points blow-up solutions of the fast diffusion equation ut = Δum in both bounded domains and ℝn × (0, ∞). We also construct initial data such that the corresponding solution of the fast diffusion equation in bounded domain oscillates between infinity and some positive constant as t → ∞.
