We study a singular perturbation problem for a quasilinear uniformly parabolic operator of interest in combustion theory. We obtain uniform estimates, we pass to the limit and we show that, under suitable assumptions, the limit function is a solution to the free boundary problem in , on , in a pointwise sense and in a viscosity sense. Here is the inward unit spatial normal to the free boundary and is a positive constant. Some of the results obtained are new even when the operator under consideration is linear.
