We give existence theorems of global solutions in Lloc ((0,∞);W0 1,∞) to the initial boundary value problem for quasilinear degenerate parabolic equations of the form ut−div{σ(|∇u|2)∇u}=0, where the class of σ(v2) includes the logarithmic case σ(|∇u|2)= log (1+|∇u|2) for a typical example. We assume that the initial data belong to W0 1,p0 ,p0≥2, or Lr,r≥1, and we derive precise estimates for ‖∇u(t)‖ near t=0.
