# On the existence of boundary and initial values for solutions of degenerate parabolic equations in the Lyapunov boundary domains

### Abstract

This work, being a continuation of [1], establishes the necessary and sufficient conditions for the solution of the second-order parabolic equations with a lateral boundary from the class $C^{1+\lambda}$, $\lambda >0$, degenerating on the boundary of the domain, to have an average limit on the lateral surface of the cylindrical domain and the limit in the mean on its lower base. Also, we study the question of the unique solvability of the first mixed problem for such equations in the case when the boundary and initial functions belong to spaces of the типа $L_2$ type. The closest to the questions under consideration are the theorems of F. Riesz and J. Littlewood and R. Paley, in which criteria are given for the limit values in $L_p$, $p > 1$, of the functions analytic in the unit disk. Further development of this topic for uniformly elliptic equations was obtained in the papers by V. P. Mikhailov and A. K. Gushchin [2–4]. The boundary smoothness condition ($\partial Q \in C^2$) can be weakened (see [5]). Under the weakest restrictions on the smoothness of the boundary (and on the coefficients of the equation), the criteria for the existence of a boundary value were established in [4, 6–8]. In this case, as shown in [7], all directions of the acceptance of boundary values for uniformly elliptic equations turn out to be equal, while the solution has a property similar to the property of continuity with respect to the set of variables. In the case of degeneracy of the equation on the boundary of the domain when the directions are not equal, the situation is more complicated. In this case, the formulation of the first boundary value problem is determined by the type of degeneracy. In the case when the values of the corresponding quadratic form of the degenerate elliptic equation on the normal vector are different from zero (the Tricomi type degeneracy), the Dirichlet problem is correct, and the properties of such degenerate equations are very close to the properties of uniformly elliptic equations; in particular, in this situation analogues of the Riesz [9] and Littlewood–Paley theorems [10, 11] are valid.
