Abstract

We consider u (x,t) a solution of ∂tu = Δu + |u|p-1u which blows up at some time T > 0, where u : ℝN × [0,T) → ℝ, p > 1 and (N-2)p < N + 2. Define S ⊂ ℝN to be the blow-up set of u, that is, the set of all blow-up points. Under suitable non-degeneracy conditions, we show that if S contains an (N-ℓ-dimensional continuum for some ℓϵ{1,...,N-1}, then S is in fact a 2 manifold. The crucial step is to make a refined study of the asymptotic behavior of u near blow-up. In order to make such a refined study, we have to abandon the explicit profile function as a first-order approximation and take a non-explicit function as a first-order description of the singular behavior. This way we escape logarithmic scales of the variable (T-t) and reach significant small terms in the polynomial order (T-t)μ for some μ > 0. Knowing the refined asymptotic behavior yields geometric constraints of the blow-up set, leading to more regularity on S.

Define S ⊂ ℝN to be the blow-up set of u, that is, the set of all blow-up points. Under suitable non-degeneracy conditions, we show that if S contains an (N-ℓ-dimensional continuum for some ℓϵ{1,...,N-1}, then S is in fact a 2 manifold. The crucial step is to make a refined study of the asymptotic behavior of u near blow-up.
