  • Consider the Cauchy problem for a nonlinear diffusion equation

    $ \begin{equation} \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \partial_t u = \Delta u^m+u^\alpha & \quad\mbox{in}\quad{\bf R}^N\times(0,\infty),\\ u(x,0) = \lambda+\varphi(x)>0 & \quad\mbox{in}\quad{\bf R}^N, \end{array} \right. \end{equation} $

    where $ m>0 $, $ \alpha\in(-\infty,1) $, $ \lambda>0 $ and $ \varphi\in BC({\bf R}^N)\,\cap\, L^r({\bf R}^N) $ with $ 1\le r<\infty $ and $ \inf_{x\in{\bf R}^N}\varphi(x)>-\lambda $. Then the positive solution to problem (P) behaves like a positive solution to ODE $ \zeta' = \zeta^\alpha $ in $ (0,\infty) $ and it tends to $ +\infty $ as $ t\to\infty $. In this paper we obtain the precise description of the large time behavior of the solution and reveal the relationship between the behavior of the solution and the diffusion effect the nonlinear diffusion equation has.
