### Continuous dependence on the derivative of generalized heat equations

#### Abstract

Here, we consider a generalized heat equation $\partial_t \rho=\frac{d}{dx}\frac{d}{dW}\rho$, where $W$ is a finite measure on the one dimensional torus, and $\frac{d}{dW}$ is the Radon-Nikodym derivative with respect to $W$. Such an equation has appeared in different contexts, one of which being related to physical systems and representing a large class of classical and non-classical parabolic equations. As a natural assumption on $W$, we require that the Lebesgue measure is absolutely continuous with respect to $W$. The main result here presented consists of proving, for a suitable topology, a continuous dependence of the solution $\rho$ as a function of $W$.
