## Abstract

We consider the semilinear parabolic system

(S) { ut-Δu=vp ; vt-Δv=uq,

where x Є R(N) (N ≥ 1), t > 0, and p, q are positive real numbers. At t=0, nonnegative, continuous, and bounded initial values (u0(x), v0(x)) are prescribed. The corresponding Cauchy problem then has a nonnegative classical and bounded solution (u(t, x), v(t, x)) in some strip S(T)= [0, T) x R(N), 0 < T ≤ ∞. Set T* = sup {T> 0 : u, v remain bounded in S(T)}. We show in this paper that if

0 < pq ≤ 1, then T* = + ∞, so that solutions can be continued for all positive times. When pq > 1 and (γ + 1 ) / (pq - 1) ≥ N/2 with γ = max {p, q}, one has T* < + ∞ for every nontrivial solution (u, v). T* is then called the blow up time of the solution under consideration. Finally, if (γ + l)(pq - 1) < N/2 both situations coexist, since some nontrivial solutions remain bounded in any strip S(T) while others exhibit finite blow up times.
