Finite mass self-similar blowing-up solutions of a chemotaxis system with non-linear diffusion

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • For a specific choice of the diffusion, the parabolic-elliptic Patlak-Keller-Segel system with non-linear diffusion (also referred to as the quasi-linear Smoluchowski-Poisson equation) exhibits an interesting threshold phenomenon: there is a critical mass $M_c>0$ such that all solutions with initial data of mass smaller or equal to $M_c$ exist globally while the solution blows up in finite time for a large class of initial data with mass greater than $M_c$. Unlike in space dimension $2$, finite mass self-similar blowing-up solutions are shown to exist in space dimension $d\geq 3$.
