Zbl 0849.35058

Summary: We consider the nonlocal problem (with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions)
\[
u_t= u_{xx}+ \lambda f(u)\Biggl/ \Biggl( \int^1_{-1} f(u) dx\Biggr)^2,\quad -1< x< 1.
\]
It is found that for the case of decreasing \(f\) then: (i) for \(\int^\infty_0 f(s) ds= \infty\) there is a unique steady state which is globally asymptotically stable; (ii) for \(\int^\infty_0 f(s)ds< \infty\) then the problem can be scaled so that \(\int^\infty_0 f(s) ds= 1\) in which case: (a) for \(\lambda< 8\) there is a unique steady state which is globally asymptotically stable; (b) for \(\lambda= 8\) there is no steady state and \(u\) is unbounded; (c) for \(\lambda> 8\) there is no steady state and \(u\) blows up for all \(x\), \(- 1< x< 1\). Some formal asymptotic estimates for the local behaviour of \(u\) as it blows up are obtained.
