monotone parabolic systems, convex variational structure and Legendre transform
yep, user5678's answer below answers my question 1 (should have thought of it!), and the reference helps for question 2. |

if $u_\epsilon \rightarrow u$ weakly in $L^2$ then also $\partial_t u_\epsilon \rightarrow \partial_t u $ weakly in $L^2$
By $u_\epsilon \in L^{\infty}(I,H^1(M))\cap Lip(I,L^2(M))$ do you mean that you have uniform bounds (in $\epsilon$), or that for any fixed $\epsilon$ the function $u_{\epsilon}$ lies in this space? if you have uniform bounds then the statement is trivial, since then $\partial_tu_{\epsilon}$ is bounded in $L^{\infty}(I,L^2(M))\subset L^2(I,L^2(M))$ so in by the Banach-Alaoglu-Bourbaki theorem $\partial_tu_{\epsilon}\rightharpoonup v$ weakly in $L^2(I,L^2(M))$ for some $v$ and then by continuity $v=\partial_t u$. Otherwise I think the statement is false. |

Reference request: Wasserstein metric spaces for non linear weights/mobility?
A quick look indicates that this is exactly what I needed, thank you Nicola. |

Reference request: density of $C_c^{\infty}(\mathbb R^d)$ in $L^2(\mathbb R^d,d\rho)$
OK, thanks @Christian Remling. Any specific reference I could cite? I was suspecting that, but for example I'm having a hard time figuring out what $L^2(\mathbb R^d,\delta_0)$ looks like (Dirac mass)... |

Spectrum of this ODE
what about the pairwise eigenfunctions, do they have any remarkable "pairwise" behaviour (odd/even, or whatever...)? |

Weak convergence of a sequence
Indeed, my argument really shows that $\nabla u_k\rightharpoonup \nabla u$ in $L^2L^2$, I just kept using $\nabla \Psi$ as test functions in order to stay consistent with the OP's setting. But I disagree with $\Delta u \in L^2(0,T; H^1_0)$, the above inequality gives $\Delta u \in L^2(0,T; H^{-1})$! |

Want to show rigorously $\frac{d}{dt}\int_{\Omega}|u(t)|^r = r\langle u_t(t), |u(t)|^{r-2}u(t)\rangle_{H^{-1}(\Omega), H^1(\Omega)}$
what about $C_c^{\infty}((0,T)\times\Omega)$? |

You should specify the range of $r$ (which I guess is $r\in[2,\infty)$). This should work by approximation. I would recommend writing $|u|^{r-1}\text{sgn}(u)=|u|^{r-2}u$, since the sign function is typically not very well behaved in Sobolev spaces (e.g. $\text{sgn}(u)\notin H^1$). |

$L^p$ norm of solution to porous medium equation decreases in time: how to make formal calculation rigorous?
For non-negative solutions you can use approximation with standard $L^1$-contractivity. For signed solutions I have no idea, I don't think the argument is so straightforward... |

$b_n \rightharpoonup b$ in $L^q(Q) \forall q < \infty$, $b_n \to b$ in $C^0([0,T];H^{-1})$ implies $b_n(t) \rightharpoonup b(t)$ in $L^q(\Omega)$
perhaps you should tell us what is the connection between $u_n$ and $b_n$? |

Getting existence for $L^1$ data given existence for $L^\infty$ data and $L^1$ continuous dependence result
By the strong $L^1(Q)$ convergence $F(u_n)\to v$ you get $F(u_n)(t,x)\to v(t,x)$ a.e. $t,x$. By continuity of $F^{-1}(z)=z^m$ you see that $u_n(t,x)\to u(t,x)=F^{-1}(v)(t,x)$ a.e., so all you need now is prove that $u_n\to u$ in $L^1$. By dominated convergence it should be enough to prove some uniform $L^1(Q)$ bounds. Have you tried taking $\varphi=u$ as a test function in your strong formulation? I guess it should give you an $L^{\infty}(0,T;L^{1+1/m})$ estimate since formally $u\partial_t F(u)= C\partial_t(u^{1+1/m})$. But that's just a suggestions... |

Comparison principle using truncation for porous medium equation
Well, typically you may want to assume something about $\nabla \Phi(u)$ rather than for $\nabla u$, and the information one usually either assumes or gets somehow is $\nabla\Phi(u)\in L^2(0,T;L^2)$. This means that you're actually considering weak energy solutions, not just very weak solutions. That's why I was saying that dual methods seem to be in order here (at least to the best of my knowledge). |
