The goal of this book is to investigate the behavior of weak solutions of the elliptic transmission problem in a neighborhood of boundary singularities: angular and conic points or edges. This problem is discussed for both linear and quasilinear equations. A principal new feature of this book is the consideration of our estimates of weak solutions of the transmission problem for linear elliptic equations with minimal smooth coeciffients in n-dimensional conic domains. Only few works are devoted to the transmission problem for quasilinear elliptic equations. Therefore, we investigate the weak solutions for general divergence quasilinear elliptic second-order equations in n-dimensional conic domains or in domains with edges. The basis of the present work is the method of integro-differential inequalities. Such inequalities with exact estimating constants allow us to establish possible or best possible estimates of solutions to boundary value problems for elliptic equations near singularities on the boundary. A new Friedrichs-Wirtinger type inequality is proved and applied to the investigation of the behavior of weak solutions of the transmission problem. All results are given with complete proofs. The book will be of interest to graduate students and specialists in elliptic boundary value problems and applications.
Synopsis
The goal of this book is to investigate the behaviour of weak solutions to the elliptic transmisssion problem in a neighborhood of boundary singularities: angular and conic points or edges. We consider this problem both for linear and quasi-linear (till now very little studied) equations. Chapter 1 is of auxiliary character. Chapter 2 deals with the eigenvalue problem for the m-Laplace-Beltrami operator. By the variational principle we prove a new integro-differential Friedrichs-Wirtinger type inequality. This inequality is a basis for the obtaining of precise exponents of the decreasing rate of the solution near boundary singularities. Chapter 3 deals with the investigation of the transmission problem for linear elliptic second order equations in the domains with boundary conic point. Chapter 4 is devoted to the transmission problem in conic domains with N different media for an equation with the Laplace operator in the principal part. Chapters 5, 6 and 7 deal with the investigation of the transmission problem for quasi-linear elliptic second order equations in the domains with boundary conic point or with an edge at the boundary of a domain.
