Abstract: We consider the degenerate evolution equation $ {c_1}(t)du/dt + {c_2}(t)A(t)u = f(t)$ in Hilbert space, where $ {c_1} \geqq 0,{c_2} \geqq 0,{c_1} + {c_2} > 0;A(t)$ is an unbounded linear operator satisfying the usual conditions which ensure that there is a unique solution for the Cauchy problem $ du/dt + A(t)u = f(t){\rm {in}}(0,T],u(0) = {u_0}$. We prove the existence and uniqueness of a weak solution, and differentiability theorems. Applications to degenerate parabolic equations are given.
