This note deals with a nonlinear system of PDEs accounting for phase transition phenomena. The existence of solutions of a related Cauchy-Neumann problem is established in the one-dimensional setting. A fixed point procedure guarantees the existence of solutions locally in time. Next, an argument based on a priori estimates allows to extend such solutions in the whole time interval. Hence, the uniqueness of the solution is proved by proper contracting estimates.
