Bounded and unbounded oscillating solutions to a parabolic-elliptic system in two dimensional space

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we consider solutions to a Cauchy problem for a parabolic-elliptic system in two dimensional space. This system is a simplified version of a chemotaxis model, and is also a model of self-interacting particles.
    The behavior of solutions to the problem closely depends on the $L^1$-norm of the solutions. If the quantity is larger than $8\pi$, the solution blows up in finite time. If the quantity is smaller than the critical mass, the solution exists globally in time. In the critical case, infinite blowup solutions were found.
    In the present paper, we direct our attention to radial solutions to the problem whose $L^1$-norm is equal to $8\pi$ and find bounded and unbounded oscillating solutions.
