### A question on certain elliptic PDE

Consider the elliptic PDE "CR"
$$\begin{cases} U_{xx}=V_{yy}\\U_{yy}=-V_{xx} \end{cases}$$
And its consequence "LAP" $$U_{xxxx}+U_{yyyy}=0$$.
Somehow, these equations are similar to the Cauchi ...

### The distribution of roots of elliptic polynomial

If $p(x)$ is an $n$ variables polynomial of even degree with complex coefficients which satisfies the strong elliptic condition, that is, Re$p(x) \ge C|x|^{2m}$ for any $x \in \mathbb R^n$ where $2m$ ...

### Conditions on a unit vector field to be the Gauss map of some surface immersed in R^3?

Let $U$ be a bounded domain in $R^2$ and let $n : U \to S^2$. Which (necessary/sufficient) conditions must $n$ satisfy in order that there exist an immersion $f : U \to R^3$ such that $n(x)$ is the ...

### Question about an estimate in Hörmander's proof of Cartan's Theorem B

I have been working through the proof of Cartan's Theorem B that HÃ¶rmander gives in his book 'Introduction to Complex Analysis in Several Variables'. When I began, I skipped over some of the initial ...

### Hölder estimates for the Complex Monge-Ampere equation

If on a bounded smooth, pseudoconvex domain in $\mathbb{C}^n$, $\mathrm{det} ( \mathrm{Hess}(u)) = f$ ($f>0$, $\mathrm{Hess}(u)>0$, $u=0$ on the boundary), if $f \in C^{k, \alpha}$, is $u \in ...

### Is there a PDE for this phenomenon?

At a point on a surface an incompressible fluid begins to up well at a constant rate and spread across the surface.
Is there a physical law - like the heat equation - that describes the flow?
Will ...

### Strong minimum principle for maximal plurisubharmonic functions

Suppose $u$ is a bounded maximal plurisubharmonic function in a bounded domain $D \in \Bbb C^n$. If $u$ is $C^2$ one can see that $u$ cannot have a local strict minimum inside $D$. Is there an analog ...

### Do there exist generalized conformal maps that preserve elliptic measure?

Let $D_1$ and $D_2$ be two bounded simply connected Jordan domains in $\mathbb{R}^2$. By CarathÃ©odory's Theorem there exists a homeomorphism $f:\bar{D}_1 \to \bar{D}_2$ such that the restriction ...

### Characterize where the Dirichlet Problem for the Laplacian is always solvable

Conway's 1978 textbook Functions of One Complex Variable I gives an unsatisfying characterization of the regions for which the Dirichlet Problem can always be solved, and then comments no cleaner ...
