Abstract: Uniqueness in the Cauchy problem is shown under suitable conditions for evolution equations of the form $ {u_t}(x,t) - B(t,{D_x})u(x,t) = 0$ , where B is a pseudo-differential operator of order $ k \geqq 0$ in the x variables. This is proved as a corollary to a norm convexity relation. In the process of showing this, an extension to Hölder's inequality is derived.
