Uniform bound for the solutions of non-uniform parabolic equations in highly heterogeneous media is concerned. The media considered are periodic and they consist of a connected high permeability sub-region and a disconnected matrix block subset with low permeability. Parabolic equations with diffusion depending on the permeability of the media have fast diffusion in the high permeability sub-region and slow diffusion in the low permeability subset, and they form non-uniform parabolic equations. Each medium is associated with a positive number ∈, denoting the size ratio of matrix blocks to the whole domain of the medium. Let the permeability ratio of the matrix block subset to the connected high permeability sub-region be of the order ∈ 2τ for τ ∈ (0,1]. It is proved that the Hölder norm of the solutions of the above non-uniform parabolic equations in the connected high permeability sub-region are bounded uniformly in . One example also shows that the Hölder norm of the solutions in the disconnected subset may not be bounded uniformly in ∈.
