Boundary Value Problems 2009, 2009:484879  doi:10.1155/2009/484879

Published: 31 March 2009


The purpose of this work is to investigate the uniqueness and existence of local solutions for the boundary value problem of a quasilinear parabolic equation. The result is obtained via the abstract theory of maximal regularity. Applications are given to some model problems in nonstationary radiative heat transfer and reaction-diffusion equation with nonlocal boundary flux conditions.
