It is well known that the bounded solution u(t, x) of the heat equation posed in RN×(0,T) for any continuous initial condition becomes Lipschitz continuous as soon as t>0, even if the initial datum is not Lipschitz continuous. We investigate this Lipschitz regularization for both strictly and degenerate parabolic equations of Hamilton–Jacobi type. We give proofs avoiding Bernstein’s method which leads to new, less restrictive conditions on the Hamiltonian, i.e., the first-order term. We discuss also whether the Lipschitz constant depends on the oscillation for the initial datum or not. Finally, some important applications of this Lipschitz regularization are presented.
