Harnack's inequality for parabolic De Giorgi classes in metric spaces

Abstract

In this paper we study problems related to parabolic partial differential equations in metric measure spaces equipped with a doubling measure and supporting a Poincaré inequality. We give a definition of parabolic De Giorgi classes and compare this notion with that of parabolic quasiminimizers. The main result, after proving the local boundedness, is a scale- and location-invariant Harnack inequality for functions belonging to parabolic De Giorgi classes. In particular, the results hold true for parabolic quasiminimizers.
