ABSTRACT
We study the long-time asymptotics of solutions of the uniformly parabolic equation for a positively homogeneous operator F, subject to the initial condition u( x, 0) = g( x), under the assumption that g does not change sign and possesses sufficient decay at infinity. We prove the existence of a unique positive solution Φ+ and negative solution Φ−, which satisfy the self-similarity relations We prove that the rescaled limit of the solution of the Cauchy problem with nonnegative (nonpositive) initial data converges to $${\Phi^+}$$ ( $${\Phi^-}$$) locally uniformly in $${\mathbb{R}^{n} \times \mathbb{R}_{+}}$$ . The anomalous exponents α+ and α− are identified as the principal half-eigenvalues of a certain elliptic operator associated to F in $${\mathbb{R}^{n}}$$ .
