Abstract

We study regularity properties of the free boundary for the thin one-phase problem which consists of minimizing the energy functional

E(u,Ω)=Ωu2dX+Hn({u>0}{xn+1=0}),ΩRn+1,E(u,\Omega) = \int_\Omega |\nabla u|^2 dX + \mathcal{H}^n(\{u>0\} \cap \{x_{n+1} = 0\}), \quad \Omega \subset \mathbb R^{n+1},

among all functions u0u\ge 0 which are fixed on Ω\partial \Omega.
