Abstract

In this paper we investigate regularity aspects for solutions of the nonlinear parabolic equation

ut=Δum,m>1,u_t= \Delta u^m, \quad m > 1,

usually called the porous medium equation. More precisely, we provide sharp regularity estimates for bounded nonnegative weak solutions along the free boundary {u>0}\partial\{u > 0\}, when the equation is universally close to the heat equation. As a consequence, local Lipschitz estimates are also established for this scenario.
