Abstract/Media

This is joint work with Max Engelstein and Tatiana Toro.

We consider the same free boundary functional $J$ as Alt, Caffareli, and Friedman, but consider only almost minimizers $u$, and prove some regularity results for $u$ and the free boundary $\partial \{ u(x) > 0 \}$. The best results (local $C^1$

free boundary neat a flat point) concern the functional with only one phase. Recall that $J$ looks like this locally:

$$ J(u) = \int |nabla u(x)|^2 + q_+(x) 1_{\{ u(x) > 0 \} } + q_-(x) 1_{\{ u(x) > 0 \} }$$ for some fixed bounded functions $q_\pm$ that are often assumed bounded from below.
