Abstract: Nonexistence of global solutions to semilinear higher-order (with respect to $t$) evolution partial differential inequalities $u^{(k)}_t-\Delta u\ge \vert x\vert^\sigma \vert u\vert^q$with $k=1,2,\dots$ in the complement of a ball is studied. The critical exponents $q^*$are found and the nonexistence results are proved for $1<q\le q^*$. The corresponding results for $k=1$ (parabolic problem) are sharp.
