The Dirichlet problem for the biharmonic equation in a Lipschitz domain
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 36 (1986) no. 3, p. 109-135

In this paper we study and give optimal estimates for the Dirichlet problem for the biharmonic operator Δ 2 , on an arbitrary bounded Lipschitz domain D in R n . We establish existence and uniqueness results when the boundary values have first derivatives in L 2 (D), and the normal derivative is in L 2 (D). The resulting solution u takes the boundary values in the sense of non-tangential convergence, and the non-tangential maximal function of u is shown to be in L 2 (D).

Dans cet article nous étudions le problème de Dirichlet pour l’opérateur biharmonique Δ 2 , dans un domaine borné lipschitzien quelconque D dans R n , et nous donnons des bornes optimales. Nous démontrons des résultats d’existence et d’unicité quand les valeurs au bord ont des dérivées dans L 2 (D), et la dérivée normale appartient à L 2 (D). La solution qu’on obtient prend les valeurs au bord dans le sens de la convergence non-tangentielle, et la fonction maximale non-tangentielle de u appartient à L 2 (D).
