We consider a semilinear wave equation with scale-invariant damping and power nonlinearity, which generalizes a nonlinear wave equation in the Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) spacetimes. The FLRW spacetimes known as standard model of cosmology are spatially homogeneous and isotropic. In this talk we show blow-up in a finite time of solutions as well as upper bounds of the lifespan in subcritical and critical cases. This talk is based on a joint work with Yuta Wakasugi.
