A \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-Poincaré Type Inequality and \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-Capacity in Carnot Groups
Robert Freeman
2:00pm-3:15pm
CMC 108

Abstract

We discuss the \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-Capacity and quasi-continuity in the sub-Riemannian setting of Carnot groups. We will use the \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-capacity and quasi-continuity to show a \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-Poincaré-type inequality. We will then use this inequality to establish the existence of a minimizer to the \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-Dirichlet energy integral. Moreover, we use the \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-Poincaré-type inequality to show the uniqueness of the minimizer, up to a set of zero \(\mathrm{p}(\cdot)\)-capacity, in the Sobolev sense.

A Theorem of Radó-type in \(R^n\), with possible extensions to Carnot Groups
Zachary Forrest
2:00pm-2:50pm
CMC 108

Abstract

We explore a Theorem for Euclidean spaces in the style of Radó for \(p\)-Harmonic functions as presented in a paper of Juutinen & Lindqvist, utilizing techniques of Viscosity Solutions. We consider the connection between the underlying Geometry and the proof of an essential Lemma in the paper, and speculate regarding the adaptability of this proof to the Heisenberg and (more generally) Carnot spaces.
