Abstract

In this article under assumption of "small" density for negativity set, we prove local Lipschitz regularity for the one phase minimization problem with free boundary for the functional

Ep(v,Ω)=Ωvp+λ1p\Xu0+λ2p\Xu>0,1<p<,\mathcal E_p(v,\Omega)=\int_\Omega|\nabla v|^p+\lambda^p_1\X{u\leq0}+\lambda^p_2\X{u>0},\hspace{3mm} 1<p<\infty,

where λ1,λ2\lambda_1, \lambda_2 are positive constants so that Λ=λ1pλ2p<0\Lambda=\lambda_1^p-\lambda_2^p<0, χD\chi_{D} is the characteristic function of set DD, Ω\Rn\Omega\subset\Rn is (smooth) domain and minimum is taken over a suitable subspace of W1,p(Ω)W^{1,p}(\Omega).
