An excess-decay result for a class of degenerate elliptic equations

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider a family of degenerate elliptic equations of the form div $(\nabla F(\nabla u)) = f$, where $F\in C^{1,1}$ is a convex function which is elliptic outside a ball.We prove an excess-decay estimate at points where $\nabla u$ is close to a nondegenerate value for $F$. This result applies to degenerate equations arising in traffic congestion, where we obtain continuity of $\nabla u$ outside the degeneracy, and to anisotropic versions of the $p$-laplacian, where we get Hölder regularity of $\nabla u$.
