English abstract:
A logarithmic fourth-order equation, called the Derrida-Lebowitz-Speer-Spohn equation, with periodic boundary conditions is analyzed. The global-in-time existence of weak nonnegative solutions in up to three space dimensions is shown. Furthermore, a family of entropy-entropy dissipation inequalities is derived in arbitrary space dimensions, and rates of the exponential decay of the weak solutions to the homogeneous steady state are estimated. The proofs are based on the algorithmic entropy construction method developed by the authors and on an exponential variable transformation. Finally, an example for nonuniqueness of
the solution is provided.
