This paper investigates the blow-up and global existence of nonnegative solutions for a class of nonlocal degenerate parabolic system. By using the super- and subsolution techniques, the critical exponent of the system is determined. That is, if , then every nonnegative solution is global, whereas if , there are solutions that blowup and others that are global according to the size of initial values
and . When , we show that if the domain is sufficiently small, every nonnegative solution is global while if the domain large enough that is, if it contains a sufficiently large ball, there is no global solution.
