1 Introduction
The plan of this paper is as follows. In the second section, we state some propositions, lemmas, and definitions and prove some invariant sets. In the third section, we state the sharp condition for the global existence and nonexistence of problem (1.1).
Throughout this paper, the \(H^{2}(\mathbb{R}^{n})\)-norm will be designated by \(\|\cdot\|_{H^{2}}\), also, the \(L^{p}(\mathbb{R}^{n})\)-norm will be denoted by \(\|\cdot\|_{L^{p}}\) (if \(p=2\), \(\|\cdot\|_{L^{2}}\) is denoted \(\|\cdot\|\)). For simplicity, hereafter, \(\int_{\mathbb {R}^{n}}\cdot\,dx\) is denoted ∫⋅.
2 Preliminaries
Proposition 2.1
From [19, 20], we can get the following lemma.
Lemma 2.2
By a similar argument to [21], we get the following lemmas.
Lemma 2.3
Solution of (2.5) belongs to M.
Proof
Lemma 2.4
When \(\varphi(x)\in M\), we have \(d>0\).
Proof
Lemma 2.5
Let \(\varphi\in H \), \(\lambda>0\), and \(\varphi_{\lambda}(x)=\lambda \varphi(x)\). Then there exists a unique \(\lambda^{*}>0\) (depending on φ) such that \(I(\varphi_{\lambda^{*}})=0\) and \(I(\varphi _{\lambda})>0\), for \(\lambda\in(0, \mu)\); \(I(\varphi_{\lambda})<0\), for \(\lambda>\lambda^{*}\). Furthermore, \(P(\varphi_{\lambda^{*}})\geq P(\varphi_{\lambda})\), for any \(\lambda>0\).
Proof
Now we discuss the invariant sets of solution for problem (1.1).
Theorem 2.6
Notice that on the basis of Theorem 2.6 one says that V is an invariant set of problem (1.1).
Proof
By a proof similar to that of Theorem 2.6, we can obtain the following theorem.
Theorem 2.7
3 The conditions for global well-posedness
Theorem 3.1
(Global existence)
Let \(u_{0}\in W\), then the existence time of solution \(u(x,t)\) for problem (1.1) is infinite.
Proof
Let \(u_{0} = 0\). From (2.2), we have \(u = 0\), which shows that u is a trivial solution of problem (1.1). □
Lemma 3.2
Proof
Theorem 3.3
(Blow up in finite time)
Let \(p>1\), \(n>\frac{2(p+2)}{p}\), \(u_{0}\in V\), \(E(0)< d\), then any solution \(u(x, t)\) to problem (1.1) blows up in finite time.
Proof
