Alternative proof for the existence of Green's function

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We present a new method for the existence of a Green's function of nod-divergence form parabolic operator with Hölder continuous coefficients. We also derive a Gaussian estimate. Main ideas involve only basic estimates and known results without a potential approach, which is used by E.E. Levi.
