Finite-time blow-up and blow-up rates for the Gierer–Meinhardt system

Academic Article


  • In this paper, we consider the Gierer–Meinhardt system (1.1), shown below, on a bounded smooth domain (Formula presented.) ((Formula presented.)) with a homogeneous Neumann boundary condition. Under suitable conditions on the exponents (Formula presented.), (Formula presented.), (Formula presented.), and (Formula presented.), we establish sufficient conditions for finite-time blow-up and obtain blow-up rates for blow-up solutions. This work is a continuation of our earlier result in this direction. The Gierer–Meinhardt system was introduced in to model activator–inhibitor systems in pattern formation in ecological systems.
