The Proximity of Free Boundary to Wedges and Planes

Karakhanyan, A (University of Edinburgh)
Wednesday 25 June 2014, 16:30-17:00

Seminar Room 2, Newton Institute Gatehouse


The talk is about the geometry of free boundary striking the centre of the half ball B_1^+ where a wedge like boundary data is prescribed near the origin. It will be seen that the effect of the wedge-like data dooms the asymptotic shape of the free boundary and the homogeneous global solutions turn out to have wedge-like free boundary too. A delicate analysis involving monotonicity formula techniques is employed to furnish the main results, which are from a joint paper with H. Shahgholian (to appear in the Transactions of the AMS).
