BMO solutions to quasilinear equations of p-Laplace type
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Online first, 29 p.

We give necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a BMO solution to the quasilinear equation -Δ p u=μ in n , u0, where μ is a locally finite Radon measure, and Δ p u=div(|u| p-2 u) is the p-Laplacian (p>1).

We also characterize BMO solutions to equations -Δ p u=σu q +μ in n , u0, with q>0, where both μ and σ are locally finite Radon measures. Our main results hold for a class of more general quasilinear operators div(𝒜(x,·)) in place of Δ p .

Nous donnons les conditions nécessaires et suffisantes pour l’existence d’une solution BMO de l’équation quasi-linéaire -Δ p u=μ dans n , u0, où μ est une mesure de Radon localement finie, et Δ p u=div(|u| p-2 u) est le p-Laplacien (p>1).

Nous caractérisons également les solutions BMO de l’équation -Δ p u=σu q +μ dans n , u0, avec q>0, où μ et σ sont des mesures de Radon localement finies. Nos principaux résultats sont valables pour la classe plus générale des opérateurs quasi-linéaires plus généraux div(𝒜(x,·)) à la place de Δ p .
