We are interested in the global existence and large-time behavior of solutions to the initial-boundary value problem for critical convective-type dissipative equations ut+(u,ux)+(anxn+amxm)u=0, (x,t)+×+, u(x,0)=u0(x), x+, xj1u(0,t)=0 for j=1,,m/2, where the constants an,am, n, m are integers, the nonlinear term (u,ux) depends on the unknown function u and its derivative ux and satisfies the estimate |(u,v)|C|u|ρ|v|σ with σ0, ρ1, such that ((n+2)/2n)(σ+ρ1)=1, ρ1, σ[0,m). Also we suppose that +xn/2dx=0. The aim of this paper is to prove the global existence of solutions to the inital-boundary value problem above-mentioned. We find the main term of the asymptotic representation of solutions in critical case. Also we give some general approach to obtain global existence of solution of initial-boundary value problem in critical convective case and elaborate general sufficient conditions to obtain asymptotic expansion of solution.
