Abstract

We study an anisotropic, possibly non-homogeneous version of the evolution p-Laplacian equation when fast diffusion holds in all directions. We develop the basic theory and prove symmetrization results from which we derive sharp L1-L∞ estimates. We prove the existence of a self-similar fundamental solution of this equation in the appropriate exponent range, and uniqueness in a smaller range. We also obtain the asymptotic behaviour of finite mass solutions in terms of the self-similar solution. Positivity, decay rates as well as other properties of the solutions are derived. The combination of self-similarity and anisotropy is not common in the related literature. It is however essential in our analysis and creates mathematical difficulties that are solved for fast diffusions.
