Recent years have seen renewed interest in the solution of parabolic boundary value problems by the method of layer potentials, a method that has been extraordinarily useful in the solution of elliptic problems. This book develops this method for the heat equation in time-varying domains. In the first chapter, Lewis and Murray show that certain singular integral operators on \(L^p\) are bounded. In the second chapter, they develop a modification of the David buildup scheme, as well as some extension theorems, to obtain \(L^p\) boundedness of the double layer heat potential on the boundary of the domains. The third chapter uses the results of the first two, along with a buildup scheme, to show the mutual absolute continuity of parabolic measure and a certain projective Lebesgue measure. Lewis and Murray also obtain \(A_\infty\) results and discuss the Dirichlet and Neumann problems for a certain subclass of the domains.


Researchers and graduate students studying harmonic analysis and partial differential equations.
