Abstract: © 2016 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. In this paper we study the existence assertion of the initial boundary value problem for the equation @u/@t = ΔeΔu. This problem arises in the mathematical description of the evolution of crystal surfaces. Our investigations reveal that the exponent in the equation can have a singular part in the sense of the Lebesgue decomposition theorem, and the exponential nonlinearity somehow "cancels" it out. The net result is that we obtain a solution u that satisfies the equation and the initial boundary conditions in the almost everywhere (a.e.) sense.
