Singular Perturbations of Forward-Backward p-Parabolic Equations

Original Paper


In this paper we have proved the existence of entropy measure-valued solutions to forward-backward p-parabolic equations. We have obtained these solutions as singular limits of weak solutions to (p,q)-elliptic regularized boundary-value problems as ε → 0+. When q > 1 and q = 2 we have not defined yet admissible initial and final conditions even in the form of integral inequalities.
