We introduce some families of generalized Black--Scholes equations which involve the Riemann-Liouville and Weyl space-fractional derivatives. We prove that these generalized Black--Scholes equations are well-posed in $(L^1-L^\infty)$-interpolation spaces. More precisely, we show that the elliptic type operators involved in these equations generate...

We show that on a bounded domain Ω⊂ℝ N with Lipschitz continuous boundary ∂Ω, if 2N/(N+2)<p≤N-1, then weak solutions of the quasi-linear elliptic equation -Δ p u+|u| p-2 u+α 1 (x,u)=finΩ with the general Wentzell boundary conditions -Δ p,Γ u+|∇u| p-2 ∂ v u+|u| p-2 u+α 2 (x,u)=gweaklyon∂Ω, are globally Hölder continuous on Ω ¯. Here, Δ p and Δ p,Γ d...

We show that a realization of the Laplace operator Au :=u′′ with general nonlocal Robin boundary conditions α j u′(j)+β j u(j)+γ 1–j u(1 − j)=0, (j=0, 1) generates a cosine family on L p (0, 1) for every p Î [1,¥){p\,{\in}\,[1,\infty)}. Here α j , β j and γ j are complex numbers satisfying α 0, α 1 ≠ 0. We also obtain an explicit represent...

Let p∈(1,N), Ω⊂RN a bounded W1,p-extension domain and let μ be an upper d-Ahlfors measure on ∂Ω with d∈(N−p,N). We show in the first part that for every p∈[2N/(N+2),N)∩(1,N), a realization of the p-Laplace operator with (nonlinear) generalized nonlocal Robin boundary conditions generates a (nonlinear) strongly continuous submarkovian semigroup on L...

We show that the semigroup generated by the realization of the Laplace operator with Wentzell boundary conditions in a bounded smooth domain is analytic on $${L^1(\Omega) \oplus L^1(\partial \Omega)}$$ .

We characterize the Lq-solvability of a class of quasi-linear elliptic equations involving the p-Laplace operator with generalized nonlinear Robin type boundary conditions on bad domains. Some uniqueness results are also given.

Let p is an element of [2, N), Omega subset of R(N) an open set and let mu be a Borel measure on partial derivative Omega. Under some assumptions on Omega, mu, f, g and beta, we show that the quasi-linear elliptic equation with nonlinear inhomogeneous Robin-type boundary conditions { -Delta(p)u + c(x)vertical bar u vertical bar(p-2)u = f in Omega d...

We consider a quasi-linear parabolic equation with nonlinear dynamic boundary conditions occurring as generalizations of semilinear reaction-diffusion equations with dynamic boundary conditions and various other phase-field models, such as the isothermal Allen-Cahn equation with dynamic boundary conditions. We thus formulate a class of initial and...

Let Ω⊂RNΩ⊂RN be a bounded domain and let μ be an admissible measure on ∂Ω. We show in the first part that if Ω has the H1H1-extension property, then a realization of the Laplace operator with generalized nonlinear Robin boundary conditions, formally given by ∂u∂νdσ+β(x,u)dμ=0 on ∂Ω, generates a strongly continuous nonlinear submarkovian semigroup S...

Let Omega subset of R(N) be a bounded domain with a Lipschitz boundary and let sigma be the restriction to partial derivative Omega of the (N - 1)-dimensional Hausdorff measure. Let B : partial derivative Omega x R --> [0, +infinity] be sigma-measurable in the first variable and assume that for sigma-almost every x is an element of partial derivati...
