In this paper we consider the critical exponent problem for the semilinear damped wave equation with time-dependent coefficients. We treat the scale invariant cases. In this case the asymptotic behavior of the solution is very delicate and the size of coefficient plays an essential role. We shall prove that if the power of the nonlinearity is greater than the Fujita exponent, then there exists a unique global solution with small data, provided that the size of the coefficient is sufficiently large. We shall also prove some blow-up results even in the case that the coefficient is sufficiently small.
