Optimal Estimates for Elliptic Equations and Systems from Composite Material
A/Prof. Hai-Gang Li
School of Mathematical Sciences, Beijing Normal University

We study a class of second-order elliptic equations and systems of divergence form, with discontinuous coefficients and data, which models the conductivity problem in composite materials. For the scalar case, we establish optimal gradient estimates by showing the explicit dependence of the elliptic coefficients and the distance between interfacial boundaries of inclusions. The novelty of these estimates is that they unify the known results in the literature and answer open problem (b) proposed by Li-Vogelius (2000) for the isotropic conductivity problem. We also obtain more interesting higher-order derivative estimates, which answers open problem (c) of Li-Vogelius (2000). This is based on a joint work with Hongjie Dong.
