Abstract: Contrary to the second order case, biharmonic heat kernels are sign-changing. A deep knowledge of their behaviour may however allow to prove positivity results for solutions of the Cauchy problem. We establish further properties of these kernels, we prove some Lorch-Szeg -type monotonicity results and we give some hints on how to obtain similar results for higher polyharmonic parabolic problems.
Keywords: biharmonic parabolic equations, heat kernels
