We consider singular solutions of a parabolic partial differential
equation with power nonlinearity. It is known that in some range of
parameters, this equation has a family of singular steady states with
ordered structure. Our concern is the existence of
time-dependent singular solutions and their asymptotic behavior,
the convergence of solutions to singular steady states. Our method is
based on the analysis of a related linear equation with a singular
coefficient and the comparison principle. This is a joint work with
Masaki Hoshino and Shota Sato.
