In this paper, we study the waiting time phenomena for a class of non-Newtonian polytropic filtration equation with convection. According to the nonlinearity in the diffusion and the convection terms, some necessary and sufficient conditions on the initial data are given for the existence of waiting time. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
