 Extinction rates and asymptotics for 0 < m < m  c

Show Summary Details


This chapter deals with the actual asymptotic behaviour of the solutions of the FDE in the exponent range 0 < m < mc . This behaviour depends on the class of initial data. The chapter is interested in ‘small solutions’ that extinguish in finite time, according to the results of Chapter 5. It concentrates on solutions that start with initial data in L 1(R n), or solutions that fall into this class for positive times prior to extinction. In the range m < mc the ZKB solutions provide the clue to the asymptotics for all non-negative solutions with L 1-data.

Keywords: extinction; self-similarity; radial asymptotic convergence; FDE; Yamabe flow; asymptotic behaviour; Dirichlet problem
