We recover a non-negative time-dependent function, vanishing only at t = 0, in a linear multi-dimensional parabolic equation with a non-integrable degeneration concentrated at t = 0. First we prove a global in time existence and uniqueness result for the direct problem in a general Hilbert space, via Fourier representation of the solution to the direct problem. Then we show a similar result, but local in time only, for the identification problem. Finally, we apply such a result to our specific linear parabolic equation related to a smooth bounded domain in ℝd, d = 1, 2, 3.
Key words.: First-order singular in time differential equations in Hilbert space; global well-posedness of the direct problem; identifying a scalar time dependent coefficient in front of the space operator; a local in time well-posedness result for the identification problem; applications to degenerate in time differential parabolic equations
