NONCONSTANT SELFSIMILAR BLOW-UP PROFILE FOR THE EXPONENTIAL REACTION-DIFFUSION EQUATION
Marek Fila and Aappo Pulkkinen
(Received October 25, 2006, revised October 19, 2007)
We study the blow-up profile of radial solutions of a semilinear heat equation with an exponential source term. Our main aim is to show that solutions which can be continued beyond blow-up possess a nonconstant selfsimilar blow-up profile. For some particular solutions we determine this profile precisely.
