Blow-up of Radially Symmetric Solutions of a Non-local Problem Modelling Ohmic Heating
MetadataShow full metadata
We consider a non-local initial boundary-value problem for the equation u t = ∆u + λf (u) / (∫Ω f(u) dx)2, x ∈ Ω ⊂ ℝ2, t > 0, where u represents a temperature and f is a positive and decreasing function. It is shown that for the radically symmetric case, if ∫∞ 0 f(s) ds < ∞ then there exists a critical value λ* > 0 such that for λ < λ* there is no stationary solution and u blows up, whereas for λ < λ* there exists at least one stationary solution. Moreover, for the Dirichlet problem with -s f'(s) < f(s) there exists a unique stationary solution which is asymptotically stable. For the Robin problem, if λ < λ* then there are at least two solutions, which if λ = λ* at least one solution. Stability and blow-up of these solutions are examined in this article.
