Free boundary problems : regularity properties near the fixed boundary
Boundary value problems Electronic book
Springer 2018EISBN 9783319970790
This book is concerned with several elliptic and parabolic obstacle-type problems with a focus on the cases where the free and fixed boundaries meet. The results presented complement those found in existing books in the subject, which mainly treat regularity properties away from the fixed boundary. The topics include optimal regularity, analysis of global solutions, tangential touch of the free and fixed boundaries, as well as Lipschitz- and $C^1$-regularity of the free boundary. Special attention is given to local versions of various monotonicity formulas. The intended audience includes research mathematicians and advanced graduate students interested in problems with free boundaries.
