Abstract

In this paper, we deal with an initial boundary value problem for a p-Laplacian evolution equation with nonlinear memory term and inner absorption term subject to a weighted linear nonlocal boundary condition. We find the effects of a weighted function as regards determining blow-up of nonnegative solutions or not and establish the precise blow-up estimate for the linear diffusion case under some suitable conditions.
