The comparison, uniqueness and existence of viscosity solutions to the Cauchy-Dirichlet problem are proved for a degenerate parabolic equation of the form ut = Δu, where Δ denotes the so-called infinity-Laplacian given by Δu = ΣNi,j=1 uxiuxj u xixj. Our proof relies on a coercive regularization of the equation, barrier function arguments and the stability of viscosity solutions.
