  • Abstract

    In this paper, we consider an initial-boundary value problem. Under some assumptions, we show that the solution of the above problem quenches in a finite time and estimate its quenching time. We also prove the continuity of the quenching time as a function of the initial datum and a potential. Finally, we give some numerical results to illustrate our analysis.
