  • Fundamental global similarity solutions of the tenth-order thin film equation u(t) = del. (vertical bar u vertical bar(n del Delta)(4)(u)) in R-N X R+, where n > 0 are studied. The main approach consists in passing to the limit by using Hermitian non-self-adjoint spectral theory corresponding to the rescaled linear poly-harmonic equation u(t) = Delta(5)(u) in R-N X R+.
