Fourier transforming Eq 121 in the at 7 variables only one nds that 121 implies that 122 a g 5 1205 0 with 12mg g and hence that 1205 e lZZ lnverting the Fourier transform then shows that uh 2 7 F1 et

above and suppose u E 02 and 10 E Q is a point where has a local maximum Then Lutxo S 0 for all t e 0T Proof Fix t E 0T and set Bij umfj co Aij aiJt x0 and let ei1 be an orthonormal basis for R such

239 The last inequality if a consequence of the second derivative test which asserts 83utaco S 0 for all u E R l Theorem 1215 Elliptic weak maximum principle Let Q be a bounded domain and L be an elliptic operator as in Eq 127 We now assume that aij and bj are functions ofac alone For each u E C 1029 such that Lu 2 0 on Q ie u is L 7 subharmonic we have 128 maxu 3 max u a bdQ Proof Let us rst assume Lu gt 0 on Q If u and had an interior local maximum at 10 E Q then by Lemma 1214 Luaco S 0 which contradicts the assumption that Luaco gt 0 So if Lu gt 0 on 9 we conclude that Eq 128 holds Now suppose that Lu 2 0 on 9 Let em1 with A gt 0 then Lam A2a11ac 1211 em 2 A A9 1211em By continuity of bac we may choose A suf ciently large so that A9 b1ac gt 0 on 2 in which case ch gt 0 on Q The

to x0 6 QTT T such that ut0 x0 niax u QT 1 1f t0aco E QT ie 0 lt to lt T then by the rst derivative test Bag to x0 0 and by Lemma 1214 Lut0 350 S 0 Therefore u 7 Lu t0aco 7Lut0 x0 2 0 which contradicts the assumption that u 7 Lu lt 0 in QT PDE LECTURE NOTES MATH 237A7B 177 2 If to7 x0 6 TI T with to T7 then by the rst derivative test7 Egg HT 0 2 0 and by Lemma 1214 Lut07 are S 0 So again u 7 Lu to7 x0 2 0 which contradicts the assumption that u 7 Lu lt 0 in QT Thus we have proved Eq 129 holds if u 7 Lu lt 0 on QT Finally if u 7 Lu 3 0 on QT and e gt 07 the function u tx utac 7 6t

There is at most one solution u E Cl 2 TI T C T to the partial di erential equation 8 8 1Lu withuf onI T Proof If there were another solution 1 then w u 7 u would solve 88 1 Lw with w 0 on PT So by

apply the maximum principle with Q B07 M and T 72 to conclude for Lac 6 QT that ut7 at 7 ept7 at vt7 at S supv0z S K if 0 S t S TQ 2E9 We may now let 6 l 0 in this equation to conclude that 1211 1421

LECTURE NOTES MATH 237A B 179 Proof Special Case Assume 2 lt Au on 0T gtlt Rd u0x lt 0 for all a 6 Rd and there exists M gt 0 such that utx lt 0 if Z M and t E 0TFor the sake of contradiction suppose there is some point Lac 6 0 T X Rd such that utx gt 0 By the intermediate value theorem there exists 739 E 0 t such that u739 a 0 In particular the set u 0 is a non empty closed compact subset of 0 T X B 0 M Let 7r 0T gtlt B0M gt 0T be projection onto the rst factor since u 7E 0 is a compact subset of 0T gtlt B0 M if follows that to 2 mint E 7ru gt 0 Choose a point 330 E B0M such that t0x0 E u 0

This information along with the rst and second derivative tests allows us to conclude mama 0 mama g 0 and g mxo 2 0 This then implies that 0 S g mxo lt Aultt0x0 S 0 which is absurd Hence we conclude that u S 0 on 0 T X Rd General Case Let pt tdlQ e lx be the fundamental solution to the heat equation 825292 2 Apt Let 739 gt 0 to be determined later As in the proof of Theorem 1218 the function 1 T

e gt 0 Letting e l 0 implies that ut at S 0 for all 0 S t S T2 As in the proof of Theorem 1218 we may step our way up by applying the previous argument to ut T2ac and then to ut 731 etc to learn utac
