We consider the aggregation equation ρt − ∇ · (ρ∇K ∗ ρ) = 0 in Rn, where the interaction potential K models short-range repulsion and long-range attraction. We study a family of interaction potentials with repulsion given by a Newtonian potential and attraction in the form of a power law. We show global well-posedness of solutions and investigate analytically and numerically the equilibria and their global stability. The equilibria have biologically relevant features, such as finite densities and compact support with sharp boundaries. This is joint work with Yanghong Huang and Theodore Kolokolnikov.
