Abstract

We are concerned with the dynamics of one-fold symmetric patches for the two-dimensional aggregation equation associated to the Newtonian potential. We reformulate a suitable graph model and prove a local well-posedness result in subcritical and critical spaces. The global existence is obtained only for small initial data using a weak damping property hidden in the velocity terms. This allows us to analyze the concentration phenomenon of the aggregation patches near the blow-up time. In particular, we prove that the patch collapses to a collection of disjoint segments and we provide a description of the singular measure through a careful study of the asymptotic behavior of the graph.
