A blow-up dichotomy for semilinear fractional heat equations (2020)
Journal Article
Laister, R., & Sierżęga, M. (2021). A blow-up dichotomy for semilinear fractional heat equations. Mathematische Annalen, 381, 75–90. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00208-020-02078-2

We derive a blow-up dichotomy for positive solutions of fractional semilinear heat equations on the whole space. That is, within a certain class of convex source terms, we establish a necessary and sufficient condition on the source for all positive...
