"Dirichlet problem for the Laplacian and the Bilaplacian in Lipschitz domains"

Aula Seminari (Palazzina RM004, via A. Scarpa 16)


Abstract: (si veda anche il file allegato)

We are interested here in questions related to the maximal regularity of solutions of elliptic problems with Dirichlet boundary condition (see [1]). For the last 40 years, many works have been concerned with questions when $\Omega$ is a Lipschitz domain. Some of them contain incorrect results that are corrected in the present work. We give here new proofs and some complements for the case of the Laplacian (see [3]), the Bilaplacian ([2] and [6]) and the operator $div(A\nabla)$ (see [5]), when $A$ is a matrix or a function. And we extend this study to obtain other regularity results for domains having an adequate regularity. We give also new results for the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator for Laplacian and Bilaplacian. Using the duality method, we can then revisit the work of Lions-Magenes [4], concerning the so-called very weak solutions, when the data are less regular.
