# Remarks on the strong maximum principle for viscosity solutions to fully nonlinear parabolic equations

• We prove a Strong Maximum Principle for upper semicontinuous viscosity subsolutions to fully nonlinear degenerate parabolic pde's. We also describe the set of propagation of maxima in the case of second order Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations which are either convex or concave with respect to the $(u,Du,D^2 u)$ variables and we derive the Strong Maximum Principle in some cases, including a class of nonlinear operators which are not strictly parabolic.
