Herrero, Miguel A. (1987) Temperature fronts in one-dimensional media. In Nonlinear parabolic equations: qualitative properties of solutions. Pitman Research Notes in Mathematics Series (149). Longman Scientific & Technical, Harlow, pp. 121-128. ISBN 0-582-99459-4


The paper surveys some recent results for the one-dimensional nonlinear heat equation with absorption subject to continuous nonnegative initial data with compact support. Without absorption, the equation becomes the porous media equation. (Generalized) solutions with interfaces, source- type solutions and the behavior of the fronts are also discussed.
