We study a nonlocal aggregation equation with degenerate diffusion, set in a periodic domain. This equation represents the generalization to $m > 1$ of the McKean--Vlasov equation, where here the “diffusive” portion of the dynamics are governed by porous medium self-interactions. We focus primarily on $m\in(1,2]$ with particular emphasis on $m = 2$. In general, we establish regularity properties and, for small interaction, exponential decay to the uniform stationary solution. For $m=2$, we… Expand

It is shown that a global minimizer is compactly supported and, in case of quadratic diffusion, it is proved that it is the unique stationary solution up to a translation. Expand
Aggregation Equation with Degenerate Diffusion
Recently, there has been a growing interest in the use of nonlocal partial differential equation (PDE) to model biological and physical phenomena. In this dissertation, we study the behavior ofExpand
Regularity Properties of Degenerate Diffusion Equations with Drifts
It is shown by a series of examples that one needs to be p=d for such estimates, even for divergence free drift, in order to achieve uniform H\"{o}lder regularity in terms of L-bound on the drift vector field. Expand
On a cross-diffusion model for multiple species with nonlocal interaction and size exclusion
The aim of this paper is to study a PDE model for two diffusing species interacting by local size exclusion and global attraction. This leads to a nonlinear degenerate cross-diffusion system, forExpand
Swarming in domains with boundaries: approximation and regularization by nonlinear diffusion

Fully Discrete Positivity-Preserving and Energy-Dissipating Schemes for Aggregation-Diffusion Equations with a Gradient Flow Structure
Sweeping dimensional splitting permits the efficient construction of these schemes in higher dimensions while preserving their structural properties and their ability to handle complicated phenomena typical in aggregation-diffusion equations, such as free boundaries, metastability, merging and phase transitions.

Aggregation-diffusion to constrained interaction: Minimizers & gradient flows in the slow diffusion limit
Inspired by recent work on minimizers and gradient flows of constrained interaction energies, we prove that these energies arise as the slow diffusion limit of well-known aggregation-diffusionExpand
Swarm Equilibria in Domains with Boundaries
It is demonstrated that in certain cases the dynamical evolution, along the gradient flow of the energy functional, tends to overwhelmingly favour the formation of (unstable) disconnected equilibria. Expand

The aim of this paper is to establish rigorous results on the large time behavior of nonlocal models for aggregation, including the possible presence of nonlinear diffusion terms modeling local Expand

Continuity of Weak Solutions to a General Porous Media Equation.

Erratum: Degenerate diffusion with a drift potential: A viscosity solution approach
The earlier paper [LK] (arXiv:0910.3432) contains a lower bound of the solution in terms of its $L^1$ norm, which is incorrect. In this note we explain the mistake and present a correction to itExpand
A Nonlocal Continuum Model for Biological Aggregation
A continuum model for biological aggregations in which individuals experience long-range social attraction and short-range dispersal is constructed, and energy arguments are used to understand the nonlinear selection of clump solutions, and to predict the internal density in the large population limit.
