Abstract: Let be an -dimensional ball centered at the origin with a radius , and be its boundary. Also, let denote the unit inward normal at , and let be the characteristic function, which is 1 for , and 0 for . This article studies the following multi-dimensional semilinear parabolic problem with a concentrated nonlinear source on :
