### Boundary regularity for the Dirichlet problem

Let us consider the unit ball $B^n$ of $\mathbf{R}^n$ and $K = B^{n-1}(0,1/2) \times \{0\}$ the ball of dimension $n-1$ and radius $1/2$ lying on the equator.
We wish to solve the Dirichlet problem ...

### Best Poincare constants on the surface of a ball

I'm considering specifically functions $\xi:\partial B(0,1) \to \partial B(0,1)$ in $\mathbb{R}^2$ and $\mathbb{R}^3$ satisfying $\int_{\partial B(0,1)} \xi(y) dS(y) = 0$. I would like to know first ...

### How does electric potential relate to mean curvature?

Consider a compact, convex domain $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^3$ with $|\Omega|=1$ with smooth boundary $\partial \Omega$.
Now consider the electric potential generated by this uniform mass ...

### What do we actually know about logarithmic energy ?

In potential theory, the $\textit{logarithmic energy}$ of a Radon measure $\mu$ acting on $\mathbb{C}$ is defined by
$$I(\mu)=\iint\log\frac{1}{|x-y|}\mu(dx)\mu(dy).$$ Of course it is not well ...

### 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 Carathéodory's Theorem there exists a homeomorphism $f:\bar{D}_1 \to \bar{D}_2$ such that the restriction ...

### A “Cauchy integral formula” for the Poisson kernel?

The inspiration for this question is in a certain breakdown of the analogy between holomorphic and harmonic functions.
First recall the Cauchy integral formula:
Let $U$ be an open subset of ...

### Version of the Poincaré Inequality

Let $\Omega\subset \mathbb{R}^n$ open and bounded. The Poincaré inequality
$$\|u\|_p \le C \|\nabla u\|_p$$
($\|\cdot\|_p$ denotes the usual $L^p(\Omega)$-norm; the Lebesgue measure shall be used ...
