So, we can get our results by following the framework in  and using (1.6)-(1.7).
The rest of this paper is organized as follows. The next section is devoted to giving a sufficient condition for the global existence of solutions for problem (1.1)-(1.2) and the upper bounded estimates on these solutions. In the last section, we investigate the complicated asymptotic behavior of solutions.
2 Preliminaries and estimates
In this section we state the definition of a weak solution of problem (1.1)-(1.2) and give the upper bounded estimates on the global solutions. We begin with the definition of the weak solution of problem (1.1)-(1.2).

- 2.For and any nonnegative which vanishes for large , the following equation holds:(2.1)
A supersolution [or subsolution] is similarly defined with equality of (2.1) replaced by ≥ [or ≤]. The weak solutions for problem (1.4)-(1.5) can be defined in a similar way as above. It is well known that problem (1.1)-(1.2) has a unique, nonnegative and bounded weak solution, at least locally in time [16, 17]. Now we state the comparison principle for problem (1.1)-(1.2).
Hence they are both Banach spaces. The existence and uniqueness of a weak solution of problem (1.4)-(1.5) with the initial-value is shown in [16, 17], and this solution satisfies the following proposition.

In other words, . Moreover, if , then the semigroup is a contraction.
In the rest of this section, we give a sufficient condition for the existence of global solutions of problem (1.1)-(1.2) and establish the upper bounded estimates of these solutions.
