We study the solutions of a parabolic system of heat equations coupled at the boundary through a nonlinear flux. We characterize in terms of the parameters involved when nonsimultaneous quenching may appear. Moreover, if quenching is non-simultaneous we find the quenching rate, which surprisingly depends on the flux associated to the other component.
In this paper we find a possible continuation for quenching solutions to a system of heat equations coupled at the boundary condition. This system exhibits simultaneous and non-simultaneous quenching. For non-simultaneous quenching our continuation is a solution of a parabolic problem with Neumann boundary conditions. We also give some results for(More)
We study the behaviour of nonnegative solutions of the reaction-diffusion equation    ut = (u)xx + a(x)up in R× (0, T ), u(x, 0) = u0(x) in R. The model contains a porous medium diffusion term with exponent m > 1, and a localized reaction a(x)up where p > 0 and a(x) ≥ 0 is a compactly supported function. We investigate the existence and behaviour of the(More)
We develop a theory of existence and uniqueness for the following porous medium equation with fractional diffusion,  ∂u ∂t + (−∆)σ/2(|u|m−1u) = 0, x ∈ RN , t > 0, u(x, 0) = f(x), x ∈ RN , with data f ∈ L1(RN ) and exponents 0 < σ < 2, m > m∗ = (N − σ)+/N . An L1-contraction semigroup is constructed. Nonnegative solutions are proved to be continuous and(More)
We study the asymptotic behaviour of nonnegative solutions of the nonlinear diffusion equation in the half-line with a nonlinear boundary condition,    ut = uxx − λ(u + 1) log(u + 1) (x, t) ∈ R+ × (0, T ), −ux(0, t) = (u + 1) log(u + 1)(0, t) t ∈ (0, T ), u(x, 0) = u0(x) x ∈ R+, with p, q, λ > 0. We describe in terms of p, q and λ when the solution is(More)
In this paper we prove a general result concerning continuity of the blow-up time and the blow-up set for an evolution problem under perturbations. This result is based on some convergence of the perturbations for times smaller than the blow-up time of the unperturbed problem together with uniform bounds on the blow-up rates of the perturbed problems. We(More)
