We consider the Cauchy-Dirichlet problem in [ 0 , ) × 𝐷 for a class of linear parabolic partial differential equations. We assume that 𝐷 𝑑 is an unbounded, open, connected set with regular boundary. Our hypotheses are unbounded and locally Lipschitz coefficients, not necessarily differentiable, with continuous data and local uniform ellipticity. We construct a classical solution to the nonhomogeneous Cauchy-Dirichlet problem using stochastic differential equations and parabolic differential equations in bounded domains.
