We show among other things how knowing Schauder or Sobolev-space estimates for the one-dimensional heat equation allows one to derive their multidimensional analogs for equations with coefficients depending only on time variable with the same constants as in the case of the one-dimensional heat equation. The method is quite general and is based on using the Poisson stochastic process. It also applies to equations involving non-local operators. It looks like no other method is available at this time and it is a very challenging problem to find a purely analytic approach to proving such results. We only give examples of applications of our results. Their proofs will appear elsewhere.
