One of the archetypical aggregation-di usion models is the so-called classical parabolic-elliptic
Patlak-Keller-Segel (PKS for short) model. This model was classically introduced as the simplest
description for chemotatic bacteria movement in which linear di usion tendency to spread ghts
the attraction due to the logarithmic kernel interaction in two dimensions. For this model there
is a well-de ned critical mass. In fact, here a clear dichotomy arises: if the total mass of the
system is less than the critical mass, then the long time asymptotics are described by a selfsimilar
solution, while for a mass larger than the critical one, there is nite time blow-up. In
this talk we will show some recent results concerning the symmetry of the stationary states for
a nonlinear variant of the PKS model, of the form
(1) @t = m + r  (r(W  ));
being W 2 C1(Rd n f0g), d  2, a suitable aggregation kernel, in the assumptions of dominated
di usion, i.e. when m > 2?2=d. In particular, if W represents the classical logarithmic kernel in
the bidimensional case, we will show that there exists a unique stationary state for the model (1)
and it coincides, according to one of the main results in the work [1], with the global minimizer of
the free energy functional associated to (1). In the case d = 2 we will also show how such steady
state coincides with the aymptotic pro le of (1). Finally, we will also discuss some recent results
concerning the model (1) with a Riesz potential aggregation, namely when W(x) = cd;sjxj2s?d
for s 2 (0; d=2), again in the di usion dominated regime, i.e. for m > 2 ? (2s)=d. In particular,
all stationary states of the model are shown to be radially symmetric decreasing and that global
minimizers of the associated free energy are compactly supported, uniformly bounded, Holder
regular, and smooth inside their support. These results are objects of the joint works [2], [3].
