Continuation of the solution to the Chemotaxis Problem Beyond its Blow-up

Mario Primicerio, Boris Zaltzman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this paper we deal with classical solutions to the chemotaxis problem and characterize cases of blow-up. Next, we define continuation of the classical solutions beyond blow-up time To. This definition is in fact nontrivial because, although allowing finite mass to concentrate in the origin after To (without prescribing its amount as a function of time), it identifies the solution uniquely. Moreover, two ways of regularizing the problem are provided: they look quite natural and they are shown to converge to the solution.
