Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Hölder regularity of solutions of generalized p-Laplacian type parabolic equations
by Hwang, Sukjung, Ph.D., Iowa State University, 2012, 120; 3539508
Abstract (Summary)

Using ideas from the theory of Orlicz spaces, we discuss the Hölder regularity of a bounded weak solution of a p–Laplacian type parabolic partial differential equation under generalized structure conditions. To show the Hölder continuity of such solutions, we use the idea of spreading positivity and geometric characters besides the standard De Giorgi's iteration method. For showing Hölder continuity of Du, we follow the perturbation argument. Under the generalized structure conditions, we give a uniform method of proof in an intrinsically scaled cylinder without separating degenerate and singular cases.
