Michael Winkler (Universität Paderborn):
Fast decay of solutions to a strongly degenerate parabolic equation of fast diffusion type

We study positive solutions of the Cauchy problem in the whole space
for the parabolic equation
\[ u_t = u^p \Delta u \qquad (\star) \]
in the range $p>1$ representing strongly degenerate diffusion.
We discuss how spatial decay of the initial data influences
the large time behavior of solutions, and thereby investigate
the dependence of corresponding growth rates of solutions on growth
rates of the initial data in a corresponding fast diffusion equation
to which ($\star$) is equivalent.

In particular, we obtain temporal decay at algebraic rates for ($\star$)
in cases of suitable algebraic decay of the initial data.
For more rapidly decreasing data, we find temporal decay rates
which consist of logarithmic, doubly logarithmic or even smaller corrections
of an again algebraic limit rate.
The methods include comparison with an apparently new family of
selfsimilar solutions as well as energy-based arguments involving
a refinement of a Gagliardo-Nirenberg-type interpolation inequality
in the limit case when one of the summability powers therein approaches zero.

This is joint work with Marek Fila.
