The boundary Harnack principle for non-divergence form elliptic operators. (English) Zbl 0806.35025
Summary: If \(L\) is a uniformly elliptic operator in non-divergence form, the boundary Harnack principle for the ratio of positive \(L\)-harmonic functions holds in Hölder domains of order \(\alpha\) if \(\alpha>1/2\). A counterexample shows that 1/2 is sharp. For Hölder domains of order \(\alpha\) with \(\alpha \in (0,1]\), the boundary Harnack principle holds provided the domain also satisfies a strong uniform regularity condition.
