Title: Sobolev contractivity of the gradient flow maximal function Abstract: In 2013, Carneiro and Svaiter showed that the heat flow maximal function is contractive in $\dot{W}^{1,2}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ for $W^{1,2}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ functions. In other words, if $K_t$ is the heat kernel then $u_*(x) = \sup_{t > 0} (K_t \ast |f|)(x)$ for some $f \in W^{1,2}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ then $\|\nabla u_*\|_{L^2(\mathbb{R}^n)} […]

Title: Understanding BMO and VMO using elliptic systems in the upper-half space Abstract: Harmonic Analysis plays a fundamental role in the study of boundary value problems for elliptic operators. In the simplest case of the Laplacian in the upper half-space, the Dirichlet boundary value problem with data in BMO (i.e., having bounded mean oscillation) is solved […]
