On the moments of solutions to linear parabolic equations involving the biharmonic operator

1. 

Dipartimento di Matematica del Politecnico, Piazza L. da Vinci 32, Milano, 20133

Received  June 2012 Revised  August 2012 Published  January 2013

We consider the solutions to Cauchy problems for the parabolic equation $u_\tau +\Delta^2u=0$ in $\mathbb{R}_+\times\mathbb{R}^n$, with fast decay initial data. We study the behavior of their moments. This enables us to give a more precise description of the sign-changing behavior of solutions corresponding to positive initial data.
