On Comparison Principles for Parabolic Equations with Nonlocal Boundary Conditions

Abstract

A generalization of the comparison principle for a semilinear and a quasilinear parabolic equations with nonlocal boundary conditions including changing sign kernels is obtained. This generalization uses a positivity result obtained here for a parabolic problem with nonlocal boundary conditions.
