Abstract

We investigate the phenomenon of instantaneous shrinking of the support of nonnegative solutions to the Cauchy problem in $\\mathbb R^n$ for $$ u_t=f(u) \Delta u - g(u), \quad \mbox{where } f(0)=0. $$ Among other results, it is shown by means of comparison and integral techniques that under some structural assumptions on $f$ and $g$, a necessary {\em and} sufficient condition on the growth of $g$ near zero for instantaneous shrinking to occur is $\int_0^1 \frac{ds}{g(s)} <\infty$.
