Smooth type II blow-up solutions to the four-dimensional energy-critical wave equation

Matthieu Hillairet and Pierre Raphaël

Vol. 5 (2012), No. 4, 777–829
Abstract

We exhibit C type II blow-up solutions to the focusing energy-critical wave equation in dimension N = 4. These solutions admit near blow-up time a decomposition

u(t,x) = 1 λ(N2)2(t)(Q + ε(t))( x λ(t)),with ε(t),tε(t)1×L2 1,

where Q is the extremizing profile of the Sobolev embedding 1 L2 , and a blow-up speed

λ(t) = (T t)e|log (Tt)|(1+o(1)) as t T.

Keywords
wave equation, blow-up
