 Smoothing effect and time decay. Data in L 1 (R n ) or M (R n )

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the smoothing and decay effects for the porous medium equation, using as a model case the famous Barenblatt solutions that have explicit formulas. Topics covered include source-type solutions, smoothing effect and decay with L 1 functions or measures as data, smoothing exponents and scaling properties, strong and weak smoothing effects, comparison for different diffusivities, a general smoothing result, and estimating the smoothing effect into Lp .

Keywords: smoothing effect; PME; Barenblatt solutions; source type solutions; decay; scaling properties; diffusivities
