Optimal regularity in time and space for the porous medium equation

Benjamin Gess, Jonas Sauer and Eitan Tadmor

Vol. 13 (2020), No. 8, 2441–2480

Regularity estimates in time and space for solutions to the porous medium equation are shown in the scale of Sobolev spaces. In addition, higher spatial regularity for powers of the solutions is obtained. Scaling arguments indicate that these estimates are optimal. In the linear limit, the proven regularity estimates are consistent with the optimal regularity of the linear case.
