We rectify an error in the proof of the global weighted Morrey-type regularity of the solution of the regular oblique derivative problem for linear uniformly parabolic operators with VMO coefficients.

Let Ω ⊂ ℝn, n ≤ 1 be a bounded C1,1-domain, Q = Ω × (0, T) be a cylinder in +n+1, and S = ∂Ω × (0, T) stands for the lateral boundary of Q. We consider the problem

{Pu:=utaij(x)Diju=fa.e.  inQ,𝔍u:=u(x,0)=0,on    Ω,𝔅u:=u/l=li(x)Diu=0onS,(3)

under the following conditions (i) and (ii) in [5].

The unique strong solvability of this problem was proved in [9]. In [10] Softova studied the regularity of the solution in the Morrey spaces and in [11] extended these studies on generalized Morrey spaces Mp,φ with a Morrey function φ satisfying Guliyev type conditions considered in [6].

The density of the C0 functions in the weighted Lebesgue space Lωp is proved in [8, Chapter 3, Theorem 3.11].

A measurable function 𝕶(x; ξ): ℝn+1 × ℝn+1 \ {0} → ℝ is called variable parabolic Calderón-Zygmund kernel (PCZK) if:

  • i)

    𝕶(x; ·) is a PCZK for a.a. x ∈ ℝn+1:

    • a)

      𝕶(x; ·) ∈ C(ℝn+1 \ {0}),

    • b)

      𝕶(x; (μy′, μ2τ)) = μ–(n + 2) 𝕶(x; y), ∀μ > 0, y = (y′, τ)

    • c)

      𝕊n 𝕶(x; y)y = 0, ∫𝕊n |𝕶(x; y)|y < +∞.

  • ii)


for each multi-index β.

Note that, the Theorems 2.10, Theorem 2.13 and Corollaries 2.11, 2.12, 2.14 in [5] the isotropic case are obtained in [4] and treat continuity in Mp,φ(ℝn+1, ω) of certain parabolic singular and parabolic nonsingular integrals.

3 Proof of the main result

Suppose that uW2,1p(Q,ω) is a solution of (3). Note that the solution of (3) exists according to Remark A (see also, [1], [12]).

We are going to show that fMp,φ(Q, ω) implies uW2,1p(Q,ω). For this goal we obtain an a priori estimate of u. Following the method used by Chiarenza, Frasca and Longo in [2] and [3], we prove the results considering two steps: interior estimate and boundary estimate.

In the proof of the interior estimate after inequality (23) in [5] we need the following interpolation inequality.

(Interpolation inequality). There exists a constant C independent of r such that Θ1εΘ2+CεΘ0for  any  ε(0,2).

Proof. For functions uW2,1p,ω(Cr),p(1,) and ωAp we dispose with the following interpolation inequality which may be proved analogously in [7]. Dup,ω;CrC(up,ω;Cr+up,ω;Cr1/2+(Dtup,ω;Cr+D2up,ω;Cr)1/2).

Then for any > 0 we have Dup,ω;CrC((1+12ϵ)up,ω;Cr+ϵ2(Dtup,ω;Cr+D2up,ω;Cr)).

Then for any > 0 we have Dup,ω;CrC((1+12ϵ)up,ω;Cr+ϵ2(Dtup,ω;Cr+D2up,ω;Cr)).

Choosing small enough, taking δ=Cϵ2<1, dividing all terms of φ(x,r)w(Cr)1/p and taking the supremum over 𝓒r we get the desired interpolation inequality in Mp, φ(ω) Dup,φ,ω;CrδDtup,φ,ω;Cr+D2up,φ,ω;Cr+Cδup,φ,ω;Cr.(*)

We can always find some θ0 ∈ (0, 1) such that Θ12[θ0(1θ0)r]Dup,φ,ω;Cθ0r2[θ0(1θ0)r]δ(Dtup,φ,ω;Cθ+D2up,φ,ω;Cθ)+Cδup,φ,ω;Cθ0r.

The assertion follows choosing δ=ε2[θ0(1θ0)r]<θ0r for any ∈ (0, 2). □

The interpolation inequality (see Lemma 3.1) gives that there exists a positive constant C independent of r such that


Thus from (23) in [5] becomes


for each θ ∈ (0, 1). Taking θ = 1/2 we get the Caccioppoli-type estimate


Consider cylinders Q′ = Ω′ × (0, T) and Q″ = Ω″ × (0, T) with Q″ ⋐ Ω″ ⋐ Ω, by standard covering procedure and partition of the unity we get


where C depends on n, p, [ω]Ap, Λ, T, ||DΓ||∞,Q, ηa(r), ||a||∞, Q and dist(Ω′, ∂Ω″).

In the proof of the boundary estimates after equality (27) in [5] applying Theorem 2.10 and Corollary 2.11 in [5], the interpolation inequality (*), taking into account the VMO properties of the coefficients aij’s, it is possible to choose R0 small


for all R < R0 (see [9, 11] for details). Making a covering {Cα+},αA such that Q\QαACα+, considering a partition of unity subordinated to that covering and applying (30) for each Cα+ we get


with a constant depending on n, p, [ω]Ap, Λ, T, diamΩ, ||DΓ||∞, Q, ηa, ||a||∞, Q, lLip(S¯), and ||Dl||∞, 𝓢.

The main estimate (11) in the Theorem 2.8 in [5] follows from (24) and (31).
