Singular solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in polyhedra. (English) Zbl 0567.35025

The behaviour of solutions of elliptic equations near the boundary \(\partial \Omega\) (which is supposed to be a polyhedron) is studied on a simple model example of a Dirichlet boundary value problem for the Laplace equation on an open bounded set \(\Omega \subset R^ 3\). The right hand side is supposed to belong to the Sobolev space \(H^ m(\Omega)\). In a very nice exposition the author describes sets of singular solutions near the edge (or near the vertex) of \(\Omega\) having the following property: the difference between the solution u and a suitable linear combination of singular solutions belong to \(H^{m+2}\) on a neighbourhood of the edge or the vertex.
