Title: Second-order boundary estimates for solutions to
singular elliptic equations
Author: Claudia Anedda (Univ. di Cagliari, Italy)
Abstract:
Let $\Omega\subset R^N$ be a bounded smooth domain.
We investigate the effect of the mean curvature of the boundary
$\partial\Omega$ in the behaviour of the solution to the homogeneous
Dirichlet boundary value problem for the singular semilinear
equation $\Delta u+f(u)=0$. Under appropriate growth conditions on
$f(t)$ as $t$ approaches zero, we find an asymptotic expansion up
to the second order of the solution in terms of the distance from $x$
to the boundary $\partial\Omega$.
