A nonlinear parabolic system of Penrose-Fife type with a singular evolution term, arising from modelling dynamic phenomena of the nonisothermal diffusive phase separation, is studied. Here, we consider the evolution of a material in which the heat flux is a superposition of two different contributions: one part is proportional to the spacial gradient of the inverse of the absolute temperature, while the other agrees with the Gurtin-Pipkin law, introduced in the theory of materials with thermal memory. The phase transition here is described through the evolution of the conserved order parameter χ, which may represent the density or concentration of some substance. It is shown that an initial-boundary value problem for the resulting state equations has a unique solution.
