The obstacle problem for Monge-Ampère type equations in non-convex domains

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we consider the obstacle problem for Monge-Ampère type equations which include prescribed Gauss curvature equation as a special case. We establish $C^{1,1}$ regularity of the greatest viscosity solution in non-convex domains.
