### Upcrossing lemma and subharmonic functions

I have been studying the upcrossing lemma for submartingales, which asserts that if $X_n$ is a non negative submartingale, and $\lambda>0$ then if we denote by $U_n$ the number of $[0,\lambda]$-...

### Behaviour of higher order Laplacian in punctured domain

Bocher theorem characterize the behaviour of a positive harmonic function in punctured disc. More precisely if $\Omega$ is a domain in $\mathbb{R}^3$ and $U$ is a non negative solution of $\Delta u=0$ ...

### Carleman's Liouville theorem for entire functions bounded along every ray

There is a long history on constructing entire functions bounded along every direction. For example, we refer to Burckel's math review on Newman (Amer. Math. Monthly 1976 MR0387593) or this ...

### Autocovariance of harmonic oscillator in fluid (Langevin Equation)

I am looking to work out an analytical solution (if it is known) for the autocovariance $Cov[X_s,X_t]$ of a particle which behaves according to the Langevin equation for a Harmonic Oscillator in a ...

### $C^1$ harmonic functions on a dense open set are globally harmonic

In a paper I am studying, at a certain point the authors introduce a function $u\in C^1(B_1,\mathbb{R})$ which is harmonic in a dense open subset $U$ of $B_1$. From this, they seem to conclude that $u$...

### Do Szego Kernel in one variable by fixing another variable in a $C^{\infty}$ bounded domain is Bounded?

Let $\Omega\subset\mathbb{C}^n$ be any $C^{\infty}$ bounded domain. Let $S(.,.)$ denotes the Szego Kenel of Holomorphic Hardy Space $H^2(\partial\Omega)$. Then for $w\in\Omega$ do $S(.,w)$ is a ...

### $\mathbb Z_k$-harmonic function that distinguishes two vertices of a graph

Let $G$ be a simple, undirected, connected graph on $n$ vertices, and let $A$ be an abelian group. A function $f:V(G)\rightarrow A$, on the vertices of the graph $V(G)$, is said to be $A$-harmonic if ...

### Kernel of the Laplacian + a function

It is known that the kernel of the (non-negative) Laplacian operator on a closed manifold consists of constant functions. I would like to ask if some similar phenomena happens for the modified ...

### Differentiability of a weak solution

Let $d$ be a positive integer with $d \ge 2$. We write $x=(x_1,\ldots,x_{d-1},x_d)=(\hat{x},x_d)$ for $x \in \mathbb{R}^d.$ The standard inner product and the Euclidean norm on $\mathbb{R}^d$ are ...

### Potential theory as a tool in extrinsic flows

Let $M \subseteq \mathbb{R}^n$ be a submanifold. For a point $x$ disjoint from $M$, we can define the electric potential $\Phi(x) = \int_M \frac{dM}{|x-m|^{n-2}}$, which is smooth and harmonic where ...

### Liouville property of hyperbolic spaces

It seems classically known (and mentioned in several papers without reference) that there exist bounded non-constant harmonic functions on the hyperbolic space $\mathbb{H}^n, n \geq 2$. I am ...

### Regularity of solution to Laplacian equation with Neumann data on Lipschitz domain

Let $\Omega$ be a bounded Lipschitz domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$ and let $u\in H^1(\Omega)$ be a weak solution to \begin{cases} -\Delta u=0 \quad &\mbox{in $\Omega$}\\ \frac{\partial ...

### Harmonic function over a square with linear Neumann boundary conditions

For a rectangle with height 1 and length 2, here is the unique numerical solution (showing contours of the equipotential from 0, defined by the bottom, to 0.54, the numerically-calculated maximum) to ...

Let $\Omega$ be a bounded domain in $\mathbb R^n$ with a smooth boundary and let $g$ be a smooth Riemannian metric on $\Omega$. Let $f_1,f_2,\ldots,f_n$ be non-constant smooth functions on \$\partial \...
