On Ventcel’s type boundary condition for Laplace operator in a sector. (English) Zbl 1291.35048

Summary: This paper deals with classical solutions of the Dirichlet-Ventcel boundary value problem (BVP) for the Laplace operator in a bounded sector in the plane having opening of the corresponding angle \(\varphi_0>0\). Ventcel BVP is given by a second order differential operator on the boundary satisfying the Lopatinksii condition there. As the boundary is non smooth, two different cases appear: \(\frac{\pi}{\varphi_0}\) is irrational and \(\frac{\pi}{\varphi_0}\) is an integer. At first we prove a uniqueness result via the maximum principle and then the existence of the classical solution. To do this we apply two different approaches: the machinery of the small denominators and the concept of Green function.
