Abstract:

One motivation for the study of the Cauchy problem is its similarity with the well-known one phase Stefan problem in one space dimension. The principal motivation for the study of this problem is that it serves as a prototype of nonlinear parabolic problems which arise as monotone convexifications of nonlinear diffusion equations with nonmonotone constitutive functions phi.
