### Elliptic theory on compact manifolds

Maybe this is silly. On a bounded set $\Omega\subset\mathbb{R}^n$ consider the equation $$\Delta u=f \quad\text{ in \Omega}$$ $$u=0\quad\text{ on \partial\Omega}.$$ One has the following ...

### reference on existence result for nonlinear elliptic PDE

During my work, I came to the question of existence of weak solutions to the following elliptic equation $$\triangle u + \partial_{1} u + \partial_2(f(x_1,x_2,u)) = 0 \hbox{ in } \Omega$$ with ...

### Mean value formula for high order elliptic operators

Weyl's lemma says any distributionally harmonic function $u\in L^1_{\text{loc}}$ is harmonic. One way to prove it is as follows. Take radially symmetric compactly supported and smooth approximation ...

### Basic doubt in a free boundary problem for the Laplacian

I am studying the following article : http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/12/87/60/PDF/fbpLaplacian.pdf In this article the authors considers $K \subset \{ x \in R^n ; x_1 = 0 \}$ a smooth, ...

### solving elliptic system of first-order linear PDE's

I am a physicist and while solving linearized Einstein's equations, have come across a system of linear PDE's with $7$ dependent variables and $2$ independent variables. There is a subsystem which ...

### find a weak solution in an intersection of Sobolev spaces

In using-lax-milgram-to-find-a-weak-solution-in-an-intersection-of-sobolev-spaces the weak solution for $$-\Delta^2 u = f \in L^2(U)\\ \\ u|_{\partial U}=\Delta u|_{\partial U} = 0$$ was discussed,...

### A question about fractional integrals

I am starting from Theorem 3.4 in Struwe's book Variational methods. The authors proves an existence result for a problem with critical growth. I would like to replace the laplacian with the ...

### A proof of energy functional appearing in the regularity of elliptic and parabolic equations

I have got trapped in this problem for nearly two years when I dealt with regularity of solutions of elliptic and parabolic equations. I have not found a nice proof to support this assertion. Now I am ...

### H_0^1 and C_infinity on the interior, does that imply classical limit is 0 on the boundary?

The solutions to the Dirichlet problem of elliptic PDE with smooth enough coefficients below to H_0^1 and also belong to C_infinity on the interior. Does that mean the classical limit of the function ...

### Higher dimensional analogue of Kellog's theorem? (Holder continuity of solution to Dirichlet problem with Holder continuous boundary data)

Let $f:S^n\to C$ be a continuous function, $n\geq 1$. When $n=1$, this is a well-known theorem, called Kellog's theorem (or sometimes Kellog-Warschawski's theorem) which states the following Theorem: ...
How is the Diamagnetic inequality born? Why is it call this name? Diamagnetic inequality： $\big|\nabla|u|(x)\big|\leq \big|(\nabla+iA)u(x)\big|$.
