In their classical work, Ladyzhenskaya and Ural'tseva gave a definition of weak solution for parabolic equations in cylindrical domains. Their definition was broad enough to guarantee the solvability of all such problems but narrow enough to guarantee the uniqueness of these solutions. We give here some alternative definitions which are appropriate to non-cylindrical domains, and we prove the unique solvability of such problems.
