Abstract [en]

For the parabolic obstacle-problem-like equation Delta u - partial derivative(t)u = lambda(+chi{u>0})-lambda(-chi{u<0}), where lambda(+) and lambda(-) are positive Lipschitz functions, we prove in arbitrary finite dimension that the free boundary delta {u > 0} boolean OR partial derivative{u < 0} is in a neighborhood of each "branch point" the union of two Lipschitz graphs that are continuously differentiable with respect to the space variables. The result extends the elliptic paper [Henrik Shahgholian, Nina Uraltseva, Georg S. Weiss, The two-phase membrane problem-regularity in higher dimensions, Int. Math. Res. Not. (8) (2007)] to the parabolic case. There are substantial difficulties in the parabolic case clue to the fact that the time derivative of the solution is in general not a continuous function. Our result is optimal in the sense that the graphs are in general not better than Lipschitz, as shown by a counter-example.
