In 1982, K. Ecker showed that solutions of the parabolic equation $u_t=\operatorname {div} \left( \frac {Du}{(1+|Du|^2)^{1/2}}\right) + H(x,u)$ have a very unusual regularity property: The interior regularity of $u$ is determined only by its initial regularity. In this note, we show that a similar result is true for a general class of equations. The model equation is $u_t=\operatorname {div} \left( |Du|^{p-2} {Du}\right)$ with $1 Citation: Gary Lieberman.
