### $L^\infty(\Omega)$-regularity for strongly damped wave equation

I am interested in the following IBVP for the strongly damped wave equation: u_{tt}-c^2\Delta u-b\Delta u_t+eu_t=f(x,t) \quad \text{in} \ \Omega \times (0,T), \\ u=0 \quad \text{on} \ ...

### Regularity for a div-curl system

Let $Q = [0,1]^3$ be the unit cube in $\mathbb{R}^3$, and let $U \subset Q$ be a simply-connected subdomain with smooth boundary. Suppose $g \: \colon Q \to \mathbb{R}^3$ is a non-negative smooth ...

### Unexpected regularity of the distance from a $C^2$ submanifold

Let $\Gamma$ be a $C^2$ compact submanifold of $\mathbb{R}^n$. Consider the distance function $\delta$ from $\Gamma$. It is well known that, for sufficiently small $\varepsilon>0$, $\delta$ is $C^2$...

### Interior regularity for elliptic operators with non smooth coefficients

I need a pretty standard interior regularity result for a second order elliptic operator of the form $$-\nabla^b \cdot (A(x) \nabla^b v)+c v=f, \qquad \nabla^b=\nabla+ib(x)$$ where $A(x)$ is a ...

### Elliptic regularity with mixed boundary conditions

I'm looking for some results about elliptic regularity with mixed boundary conditions. I know they exist with non mixed boundary conditions but where can I find some results for the mixed case? Thanks

### Regularity up to the boundary for the Poisson problem

It seems that the following assertion is widely accepted: For $k\in\mathbb N$, $p\geq 2$, $\Omega \subset \mathbb R^n$ bounded with $\partial\Omega\in C^{k+2}$ and $f\in W^{k,p}(\Omega)$, the weak ...

### Asking for Advices for Choosing a Ph.D thesis problem (in PDE area)

I'm a first year phd student in Germany. I've started my phd study one year ago and I'm currently confused about the topic I've chosen. The program is in the area of PDEs, and actually I didn't learn ...

### Distance function from a topological submanifold

Let $(M,g)$ be a Riemannian manifold, and let $N\subset M$ be an embedded sphere that is everywhere smooth except for a single point at which the embedding will only be $C^0$. How much regularity can ...

### Regularity of solution to a hyperbolic pde

I have a question concerning 2nd order evolution equation of the form $u''(t)+A(t)u(t) = f(t)$ in $L^2(0,T;V^*)$, where $f\in\ L^2(0,T;H)$ holds. Under what assumptions is it possible, to guarantee a ...

### On the Hölder regularity of an integral function

Let $n\geq 3$. Let $\Omega$ be an open and bounded subset of $\mathbb{R}^n$. Let define $X_0$ as the space of functions $f:\bar\Omega\times\partial\Omega\to\mathbb{R}$ such that $f(x,\cdot)$ is ...

### Approximation of sets by sets with regular border

What kind of conditions on a (bounded) set $E \subset \mathbb{R}^{n}$ ensure that it can be approximated from outside/inside by sets with regular border (say Lipshitz or $C^{k}$ conditions) in the ...

### Topological description of the regular values of a differentiable function

Is there some kind of description of the set of regular values of a differentiable function $f:\mathbb{R}^{n} \to \mathbb{R}^{m}$ in topological terms? In particular, is the set of regular values ...

### Capacity approximations by sets with regular boundary

Suppose I have a continuous, compactly supported function $f : \mathbb{R}^2 \to \mathbb{R}_{+}$ and I define the set $S := f^{-1}([a,\infty)) \subset \mathbb{R}^2$ for some $a > 0$. It is a ...

### Does the implicit function theorem hold for discontinuously differentiable functions?

(This was posted on math.SE over 5 days ago and has not been answered, although a comment mentioned a similar question on this site.) Wikipedia's statement of the implicit function theorem requires ...

### W^{2,∞} regularity of solutions of Poisson's equation if the right hand side is in L^{∞}

Let $u$ be solution of $-\Delta u = f$ in $\Omega$ and $\frac{\partial u}{\partial n} = 0$ on $\partial \Omega$. Is it true that if $f \in L^{\infty}(\Omega)$ then $u \in W^{2,\infty}(\Omega)$? (...

### Reference request: optimal $L^p$ regularity for solutions to $-\Delta u=f$ with $f\in L^1(R^d)$

The tilte says it all. Given $f\in L^1(R^d)$ (let me restrict to dimension $d\geq 3$ for convenience), what is the optimal $L^p$ regularity for solutions to $$-\Delta u=f\hspace{3cm}(1)?$$ I'm of ...

### Are all almost regular graphs obvious?

Let the maximum and minimum degress of a graph be denoted (as usual) by $\Delta$ and $\delta$ respectively. A graph is almost regular if $\Delta-\delta=1$. Now, here is a simple way to generate ...

### mixed Dirichlet Neumann regularity for an elliptic equation

Here is a problem which may be easy for some of you but not for me. Statement of the problem: Denote $\Omega := \{ (x,y) \in (0, \infty) \times (-\infty,\infty) \}$. Let $f \in L^2(\Omega)$ then by a ...

### Optimal Regularity for Invariance of Curvature under Isometries

It is well known that sectional curvature is an invariant under isometries. I wonder what the optimal regularity for this result to hold is (in terms of Hölder-spaces)?. It is classical that $C^3$-...

### Physical and real life interpretation of the concept of regularity used in differential equations?

I guess the title kind of speaks for my questions: I'm curious to know what could be the physical interpretation or real life application of the concept of regularity that arises in PDE: take for ...

### reference request: trace/lifting operator for $L^{\infty}$ data in bounded $\Omega\subset R^d$

I know the answer to my question must be somewhere in the literature. Probably in [Adams-Fournier], [Dautray-Lions] or something alike, but I don't have access to a library right now so I'll ask ...

### Constant in Maximal sobolev regularity

We know the following evolution equation $$\left\{ \begin{array}{llc} v_t=A v+f,\\ v(0)=0. \end{array} \right.$$ $A$ generates a bounded analytic semigroup on a Banach ...
The Courant nodal domain theorem (for Neumann boundary conditions) says that the $n$-th eigenfunction has at most $n$ nodal domains (connected components where the eigenfunction has the same sign. ...
