Abstract: We calculate the scaling behavior of the secondkind selfsimilar blowup solution of an aggregation equation in odd dimensions. This solution describes the radially symmetric finitetime blowup phenomena and has been observed in numerical simulations of the dynamic problem. The nonlocal equation for the selfsimilar profile is transformed into a system of ODEs that is solved using a shooting method. The anomalous exponents are then retrieved from this transformed system. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
