Life span of blow-up solutions for higher-order semilinear parabolic equations

Fuqin Sun

In this article, we study the higher-order semilinear parabolic equation
 u_t+(-\Delta)^m u=|u|^p, \quad (t,x)\in
 \mathbb{R}^1_+\times \mathbb{R}^N,\cr
 u(0,x)= u_0(x),\quad x\in \mathbb{R}^N.
Using the test function method, we derive the blow-up critical exponent. And then based on integral inequalities, we estimate the life span of blow-up solutions.
