Abstract: In this note we discuss blow-up at space infinity for quasilinear parabolic equation $u_t = \Delta u^m + u^{p}$. It is known that if initial data is not a constant and takes its maximum at space infinity in a certain sense, the solution blows up only at space infinity at minimal blow-up time. We show that if $m \ge 1$ and a solution blows up at minimal blow-up time, then it blows up completely at the blow-up time.

Keywords:  Blow-up at space infinity, minimal blow-up time, complete blow-up
