Summability of semicontinuous supersolutions to a quasilinear parabolic equation
Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa - Classe di Scienze, Série 5, Volume 4 (2005) no. 1, p. 59-78
We study the so-called p-superparabolic functions, which are defined as lower semicontinuous supersolutions of a quasilinear parabolic equation. In the linear case, when p=2, we have supercaloric functions and the heat equation. We show that the p-superparabolic functions have a spatial Sobolev gradient and a sharp summability exponent is given.
