Abstract: This paper discusses the existence of weak solutions for an initial boundary-value problem of a nonuniform second order parabolic equation in which the coefficient $ b(t,x)$ of $ {u_t}$ is nonnegative and the coefficient matrix $ ({a_{ij}}(t,x))$ of the elliptic part is not necessarily positive definite. When $ b(t,x) \equiv 0$, this problem is reduced to a degenerate elliptic system. A discussion of the existence of weak solutions for the degenerate elliptic boundary-value problem from the parabolic system is included.
