Very weak solutions of parabolic systems of p-Laplacian type

Juha Kinnunen and John L. Lewis

Full-text: Open access


This research was partially conceived at the Mittag-Leffler Institute during a special year in PDE's in 1999–2000. The authors wish to thank the Institute for gracious hospitality. The first author was also supported by the Academy of Finland and the second author by an NSF Grant.
