Abstract

This paper deals with the Cauchy problem for the nonlinear diffusion equation ∂ u/∂ t - Δ(u|u|m-1) = 0 on (0, ∞) × RN, u (0, ·) = u0 when $0 < m < 1$ (fast diffusion case). We prove that there exists a global time solution for any locally integrable function u0: hence, no growth condition at infinity for u0 is required. Moreover the solution is shown to be unique in that class. Behavior at infinity of the solution and $L^\infty_{\operatorname{loc}}$ -regularizing effects are also examined when m ∈ (max {(N - 2)/N,0}, 1).
