We consider positive solutions of the Cauchy problem for the fast diffusion equation. Sufficient conditions for extinction of solutions in finite time are well known. We shall discuss results on the asymptotic behavior of solutions near the extinction time obtained in collaboration with John R. King, Juan Luis Vazquez, Michael Winkler and Eiji Yanagida.
