The equation utt − Δu = |u|p is considered in two and three space dimensions. Smooth Cauchy data of compact support are given at t = 0. For the case of three space dimensions, John has shown that solutions with sufficiently small data exist globally in time if but that small data solutions blow up in finite time if Glassey has shown the two dimensional case is similar. This paper shows that small data solutions blow up in finite time when p is the critical value, in three dimensions and in two.
