Some blowup results for a nonlinear parabolic equation with a gradient term. (English) Zbl 0682.35010
This paper concerns the blow-up in finite time of solutions of semilinear parabolic initial-boundary value problems on bounded domains in \({\mathbb{R}}^ N\), when the nonlinear term has gradient dependence. The gradient term has a damping effect, working against blow-up, but nevertheless it is shown for a simple model equation that blow-up in finite time occurs, under some technical assumptions, in the supremum norm.
