Solutions of the 4-species quadratic reaction-diffusion system are bounded and $C^\infty$-smooth, in any space dimension

Abstract

We establish the boundedness of solutions of reaction-diffusion systems with quadratic (in fact slightly superquadratic) reaction terms that satisfy a natural entropy dissipation property, in any space dimension N > 2. This bound implies the C-regularity of the solutions. This result extends the theory which was restricted to the two-dimensional case. The proof heavily uses De Giorgi’s iteration scheme, which allows us to obtain local estimates. The arguments rely on duality reasoning in order to obtain new estimates on the total mass of the system, both in the L(N+1)N norm and in a suitable weak norm. The latter uses Cα regularization properties for parabolic equations.
