Differentiability with Respect to Parameters of Weak Solutions of Linear Parabolic EquationsMathematical and Computer Modelling
AbstractWe consider the differentiability of weak solutions of linear parabolic equations with respect to parameters and initial data. under natural assumptions, it is shown that solutions possess as much differentiability with respect to the data as do the terms appearing in the equation. The derivatives are shown to satisfy the appropriate sensitivity equations. The theoretical results are illustrated with an example.
