### Very slow convergence to zero for a supercritical semilinear parabolic equation

Christian Stinner

#### Abstract

We study the asymptotic behavior of nonnegative solutions to the Cauchy problem for a semilinear parabolic equation with a supercritical nonlinearity. It is known that there are initial data such that the corresponding solution decays to zero with an algebraic rate. Furthermore, any algebraic rate which is slower than the self-similar rate occurs as decay rate for some solution. In this paper we prove that the convergence to zero can take place with an "arbitrarily" slow rate, if the initial data are chosen properly.
