We establish higher integrability up to the boundary for the gradient of solutions to porous medium type systems, whose model case is given by ∂tu − ∆(|u|m1u) = div F, where m > 1. More precisely, we prove that under suitable assumptions the spatial gradient D(|u|m1u) of any weak solution is integrable to a larger power than the natural power 2. Our analysis includes both the case of the lateral boundary and the initial boundary.
