Characterization of blow-up for a semilinear heat equation with a convection term. (English) Zbl 0694.76035

Summary: We consider the convective semilinear heat equation \(u_ t=\Delta u+e^ u-| \nabla u|^ 2\) on bounded domains with analytic boundaries. Conditions for the existence of a blow-up point and finite blow-up time are given. A description of the asymptotic behaviour of the solution u(x,t) near the blow-up points is also given. Finally, a weak formulation of solutions is discussed which allows one to analyse post-blow-up phenomena.
