Abstract: Emmanuele DiBenedetto passed away in May 2021, after battling cancer for fifteen months. I have had the unique privilege to collaborate and discuss Mathematics with him, almost up to his final days. Here I briefly present his life and those mathematical results of his, which I consider most familiar with.

[71] U. Gianazza and N. Liao - Continuity of the temperature in a multi-phase transition problem - Mathematische Annalen (2021), 1-35.
Abstract: Locally bounded, local weak solutions to a doubly nonlinear parabolic equation, which models the multi-phase transition of a material, is shown to be locally continuous. Moreover, an explicit modulus of continuity is given. The effect of the $p$-Laplacian type diffusion is also considered.

[70] U. Gianazza and N. Liao - A Boundary Estimate for Singular Sub-Critical Parabolic Equations - Int. Math. Res. Notices (2020), 1-22.
Abstract: We prove an estimate on the modulus of continuity at a boundary point of a cylindrical domain for local weak solutions to singular parabolic equations of $p$-laplacian type, with $p$ in the sub-critical range $(1,\frac{2N}{N+1}]$. The estimate is given in terms of a Wiener-type integral, defined by a proper elliptic $p$-capacity.

[69] U. Gianazza and S. Salsa - On the Harnack Inequality for Non-divergence Parabolic Equations - Mathematics in Engineering, 3(3) (2020), 1-11.
Abstract: In this paper we propose an elementary proof of the Harnack inequality for linear parabolic equations in non-divergence form.

[68] U. Gianazza and C. Klaus - $p$-Parabolic Approximation of Total Variation Flow Solutions - Indiana Univ. Math. J., 68 No. 5 (2019), 1519-1550.
Abstract: We show that variational solutions to the Cauchy-Dirichlet problem for the total variation flow can be built as the limit of variational solutions to the same problem for the parabolic $p$-Laplacian.

[67] F. Rossella, V. Bellani, M. Tommasini, U. Gianazza, E. Comini, C. Soldano - 3D Multi-Branched SnO2 Semiconductor Nanostructures as Optical Waveguides - Materials, (2019), 12, 3148, 1-9.
Abstract: Nanostructures with complex geometry have gathered interest recently due to some unusual and exotic properties associated with both their shape and material. 3D multi-branched SnO2 one-dimensional nanostructrures, characterized by a node - i.e., the location where two or more branches originate, are the ideal platform to distribute signals of different natures. In this work, we study how this particular geometrical configuration affects light propagation when a light source (i.e., laser) is focused onto it. Combining scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and optical analysis along with Raman and Rayleigh scattering upon illumination, we were able to understand, in more detail, the mechanism behind the light-coupling occurring at the node. Our experimental findings show that multi-branched semiconductor 1D structures have great potential as optically active nanostructures with waveguiding properties, thus paving the way for their application as novel building blocks for optical communication networks

[66] U. Gianazza and S. Schwarzacher - Self-improving property of the fast diffusion equation - Journal of Functional Analysis, 1-57, (2019).
Abstract: We show that the gradient of the $m$-power of a solution to a singular parabolic equation of porous medium-type (also known as fast diffusion equation), satisfies a reverse Hölder inequality in suitable intrinsic cylinders. Relying on an intrinsic Calderón-Zygmund covering argument, we are able to prove the local higher integrability of such a gradient for $m\in\left(\frac{(n-2)_+}{n+2},1\right)$. Our estimates are satisfied for a general class of growth assumptions on the non linearity. In this way, we extend the theory for $m\geq 1$ (see [5] in this list of references) to the singular case. In particular, an intrinsic metric that depends on the solution itself is introduced for the singular regime.

[65] U. Gianazza and N. Liao - A Boundary Estimate for Degenerate Parabolic Diffusion Equation - Potential Analysis, 53, (2020), 977-995. See also this other link
Abstract: We prove an estimate on the modulus of continuity at a boundary point of a cylindrical domain for local weak solutions to degenerate parabolic equations of $p$-laplacian type. The estimate is given in terms of a Wiener-type integral, defined by a proper elliptic $p$-capacity.

[64] U. Gianazza and S. Schwarzacher - Self-improving property of degenerate parabolic equations of porous medium-type - American Journal of Mathematics, 141(2), (2019), 399-446.
Abstract: We show that the gradient of solutions to degenerate parabolic equations of porous medium-type satisfies a reverse Hölder inequality in suitable intrinsic cylinders. We modify the by-now classical Gehring lemma by introducing an intrinsic Calderón-Zygmund covering argument, and we are able to prove local higher integrability of the gradient of a proper power of the solution $u$.

Abstract: We study the boundary regularity of solutions to the porous medium equation $u_t=\Delta u^m$ in the degenerate range $m>1$. In particular, we show that in cylinders the Dirichlet problem with positive continuous boundary data on the parabolic boundary has a solution which attains the boundary values, provided that the spatial domain satisfies the elliptic Wiener criterion. This condition is known to be optimal, and it is a consequence of our main theorem which establishes a barrier characterization of regular boundary points for general - not necessarily cylindrical - domains in $\mathbb R^{n+1}$. One of our fundamental tools is a new strict comparison principle between sub- and superparabolic functions, which makes it essential for us to study both nonstrict and strict Perron solutions to be able to develop a fruitful boundary regularity theory. Several other comparison principles and pasting lemmas are also obtained. In the process we obtain a rather complete picture of the relation between sub/superparabolic functions and weak sub/supersolutions.

[60] U. Gianazza and S. Salsa - On the Boundary Behaviour of Solutions to Parabolic Equations of $p-$Laplacian Type - Rend. Istit. Mat. Univ. Trieste, 48, (2016), 463-483.
Abstract: This is a survey, in which we describe some recent results on the boundary behavior of non-negative solutions to a class of degenerate/singular parabolic equations, whose prototype is the parabolic $p$-Laplacian. More precisely we focus on Carleson-type estimates and boundary Harnack principles.

Abstract: We consider non-homogeneous, singular ($m\in(0,1)$) parabolic equations of porous medium type of the form $$ u_t-\operatorname{div} \mathbf A(x,t,u,Du)=\mu\qquad\mbox{in $E_T$,} $$ where $E_T$ is a space time cylinder, and $\mu$ is a Radon-measure having finite total mass $\mu(E_T)$. In the range $m\in(\frac{(N-2)_+}{N},1)$ we establish sufficient conditions for the boundedness and the continuity of $u$ in terms of a natural Riesz potential of the right-hand side measure $\mu$.

[58] E. DiBenedetto and U. Gianazza - Some Properties of DeGiorgi Classes - Rend. Istit. Mat. Univ. Trieste, 48, (2016), 245-260.
Abstract: The DeGiorgi classes $[DG]_p(E;\gamma)$, defined in (1.1)$_\pm$ of the manuscript encompass, solutions of quasilinear elliptic equations with measurable coefficients as well as minima and $Q$-minima of variational integrals. For these classes we present some new results (§ 2 and § 3.1), and some known facts scattered in the literature (§ 3-§ 5), and formulate some open issues (§ 6).

Abstract: In this paper we obtain sharp Petrovskiĭ criteria for the $p$-parabolic equation, both in the degenerate case $p$>2 and the singular case 1<$p$<2. We also give an example of an irregular boundary point at which there is a barrier, thus showing that regularity cannot be characterized by the existence of just one barrier.

[56] F.G. Düzgün, U. Gianazza and V. Vespri - 1-Dimensional Harnack Estimates - Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems, Series S, 9(3), (2016), 675-685.
Abstract: Let $u$ be a non-negative super-solution to a 1-dimensional singular parabolic equation of $p$-Laplacian type, $p\in(1,2)$. If $u$ is bounded below on a time-segment $\{y\}\times(0,T]$ by a positive number $M$, then it has a power-like decay of order $\frac p{2-p}$ with respect to the space variable $x$ in ${\mathbb R}\times[T/2,T]$. This fact, stated quantitatively in Proposition 1.1, is a sidewise spreading of positivity of solutions to such singular equations, and can be considered as a form of Harnack inequality. The proof of such an effect is based on geometrical ideas.

[55] B. Avelin, U. Gianazza and S. Salsa - Boundary Estimates for Certain Degenerate and Singular Parabolic Equations - J. Eur. Math. Soc. 18, (2016), 381-424.
Abstract: We study the boundary behavior of non-negative solutions to a class of degenerate/singular parabolic equations, whose prototype is the parabolic $p$-Laplacian. Assuming that such solutions continuously vanish on some distinguished part of the lateral part $S_T$ of a Lipschitz cylinder, we prove Carleson-type estimates, and deduce some consequences under additional assumptions on the equation or the domain. We then prove analogous estimates for non-negative solutions to a class of degenerate/singular parabolic equations, of porous medium type.

Abstract: For proper minimizers of parabolic variational integrals with linear growth with respect to $|Du|$, we establish a necessary and sufficient condition for $u$ to be continuous at a point $(x_o,t_o)$, in terms of a sufficient fast decay of the total variation of $u$ about $(x_o,t_o)$. These minimizers arise also as proper solutions to the parabolic $1$-Laplacian equation. Hence, the continuity condition continues to hold for such solutions.

[52] V. Bögelein, F. Duzaar and U. Gianazza - Very weak solutions of singular porous medium equations with measure data - Communications on Pure and Applied Analysis, 14(1), (2015), 23-49.
Abstract: We consider non-homogeneous, singular ($m\in(0,1)$) porous medium type equations with a non-negative Radon-measure $\mu$ having finite total mass $\mu(E_T)$ on the right-hand side. We deal with a Cauchy-Dirichlet problem for these type of equations, with homogeneous boundary conditions on the parabolic boundary of the domain $E_T$, and we establish the existence of\ a solution in the sense of distributions. Finally, we show that the constructed solution satisfies linear pointwise estimates via linear Riesz potentials.

[51] V. Bögelein, F. Duzaar and U. Gianazza - Continuity estimates for porous medium type equations with measure data - Journal of Functional Analysis, 267(9), (2014), 3351-3396.
Abstract: We consider parabolic equations of porous medium type of the form $$ u_t-\operatorname{div} \mathbf A(x,t,u,Du)=\mu\qquad\mbox{in $E_T$,} $$ in some space time cylinder $E_T$. The most prominent example covered by our assumptions is the classical porous medium equation $$ u_t-\Delta u^m =\mu\qquad\mbox{in $E_T$,} $$ {with $m\ge1$.} We establish a sufficient condition for the continuity of $u$ in terms of a natural Riesz potential of the right-hand side measure $\mu$. As an application we come up with a borderline condition ensuring the continuity of $u$: more precisely, if $\mu\in L\big(\frac{N+2}2,1\big)$, then $u$ is continuous in $E_T$.

[50] E. DiBenedetto, U. Gianazza and N. Liao - Two Remarks on the Local Behavior of Solutions to Logarithmically Singular Diffusion Equations and its Porous-Medium Type Approximations - Riv. Mat. Univ. Parma, vol. 5(1), (2014), 139-182.
Abstract For the logarithmically singular parabolic equation $$u_t-\Delta\ln u=0,$$ we establish a Harnack type estimate in the $L^1_{loc}$ topology, and we show that the solutions are locally analytic in the space variables and differentiable in time. The main assumption is that $\ln u$ possesses a sufficiently high degree of integrability. These two properties are known for solutions of singular porous medium type equations ($m\in(0,1)$), which formally approximate the logarithmically singular equation. However, the corresponding estimates deteriorate as $m\to0$. It is shown that these estimates become stable and carry to the limit as $m\to0$, provided the indicated sufficiently high order of integrability is in force. The latter then appears as the discriminating assumption between solutions of parabolic equations with power-like singularities and logarithmic singularities to insure such solutions to be regular.

[49] A. Björn, J. Björn, U. Gianazza and M. Parviainen - Boundary regularity for degenerate and singular parabolic equations - Calc. Var., 52(3) (2015), 797-827.
Abstract: We characterise regular boundary points of the parabolic $p$-Laplacian in terms of a family of barriers, both when $p>2$ and $p\in(1,2)$. Due to the fact that $p\not=2$, it turns out that one can multiply the $p$-Laplace operator by a positive constant, without affecting the regularity of a boundary point. By constructing suitable families of barriers, we give some simple geometric conditions that ensure the regularity of boundary points.

Abstract: We consider non-homogeneous, degenerate ($m>1$) porous medium type equations with a non-negative Radon measure $\mu$ having finite total mass $\mu(E_T)$ on the right-hand side, and we derive linear pointwise estimates for solutions via Riesz potentials. Then, we deal with a Cauchy-Dirichlet problem for the same equation, with homogeneous boundary conditions on the parabolic boundary of the domain $E_T$, and we establish the existence of a solution in the sense of distributions.

[47] E. Dallago, D.G. Finarelli, U. Gianazza, A. Lazzarini Barnabei and A. Liberale - Theoretical and experimental analysis of an MPP detection algorithm employing a single voltage sensor only and a noisy signal - IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, vol.28(11), (2013), 5088-5097.
Abstract: In this paper, a maximum power point (MPP) detection algorithm for photovoltaic (PV) systems is introduced, which uses the experimental information obtained from a single-voltage sensor, measured on a capacitor load, either linked at the output of a solar cell (SC), a PV module, or a PV string. The voltage signal is naturally affected by the noise which has a relevant effect on the process necessary for MPP determination, such as voltage first- and second-order derivatives. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the technical feasibility of a maximum power point tracker (MPPT) based on the present MPP detection algorithm employing a single-voltage sensor acquiring a signal affected by the significant noise. Theoretical evaluation, numerical simulations, and experimental measurements are carried out. Excellent agreement between the theoretical and experimental behavior is observed. Conditions for correct MPP detection are shown and good performances are obtained.

Abstract: The weakly coupled system \begin{equation*} \left\{ \begin{array}{l} {\displaystyle v_t-{\operatorname{div}}[A(v)\nabla v+{\bf B}(v)]={\bf V}\cdot\nabla C(v)}\\ {\displaystyle {\operatorname{div}}{\bf V}=0} \end{array}\right. \qquad\text{ in }\>E_T. \end{equation*} consists of an elliptic equation and a degenerate parabolic equation, and it arises in the theory of flow of immiscible fluids in a porous medium. The unknown functions $u$ and $v$ and the equations they satisfy, represent the pressure and the saturation respectively, subject to Darcy's law and the Buckley--Leverett coupling. Due to the empirical nature of these laws no determination is possible on the structure of the degeneracy exhibited by the system. It is established that the saturation is a locally continuous function in its space--time domain of definition, irrespective of the nature of the degeneracy of the principal part of the system.

Abstract: Let $\{u_m\}$ be a local, weak solution to the porous medium equation \begin{equation*} u_{m,t}-\Delta w_m=0 \end{equation*} where $w_m=\frac{u_m^m-1}{m}$. It is shown that if $\{u_m\}$ is locally in $L^r_{loc}$ for $r>\frac12N$ uniformly in $m$ and if $w_m$ is in $L^p_{loc}$ for $p>N+2$ in the space variables, uniformly in time, then $\{u_m\}$ contains a subsequence converging in $C^{\alpha,\frac12\alpha}_{loc}$ to a local, weak solution to the logarithmically singular equation $u_t=\Delta\ln u$. The result is based on local upper and lower bounds on $\{u_m\}$, uniform in $m$. The uniform, local lower bounds are realized by a Harnack type inequality.

Abstract: The local positivity of solutions to logarithmically singular diffusion equations is investigated in some open space-time domain $E\times(0,T]$. It is shown that if at some time level $t_o\in(0,T]$ and some point $x_o\in E\,$ the solution $u(\cdot,t_o)$ is not identically zero in a neighborhood of $x_o$, in a measure-theoretical sense, then it is strictly positive in a neighborhood of $(x_o,t_o)$. The precise form of this statement is by an intrinsic Harnack-type inequality, which also determines the size of such a neighborhood.
