Parabolic elliptic type Keller-Segel system on the whole space case
Jinhuan Wang Li Chen Liang Hong
This note is devoted to the discussion on the existence and blow up of the solutions to the parabolic elliptic type Patlak-Keller-Segel system on the whole space case. The problem in two dimension is closely related to the Logarithmic Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev inequality, which directly introduced the critical mass $8\pi$. While in the higher dimension case, it is related to the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev inequality. Therefore, a porous media type nonlinear diffusion has been introduced in order to balance the aggregation. We will review the critical exponents which were introduced in the literature, namely, the exponent $m=2-2/n$ which comes from the scaling invariance of the mass, and the exponent $m=2n/(n+2)$ which comes from the conformal invariance of the entropy. Finally a new result on the model with a general potential, inspired from the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev inequality, will be given.
