$W$-Sobolev spaces: Higher order and regularity

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • Fix a function $W(x_1,\ldots,x_d) = \sum_{k=1}^d W_k(x_k)$ where each $W_k: R \to R$ is a right continuous with left limits and strictly increasing function, and consider the $W$-laplacian given by $\Delta_W = \sum_{i=1}^d \partial_{x_i}\partial_{W_i}$, which is a generalization of the laplacian operator. In this work we introduce the $W$-Sobolev spaces of higher order, thus extending the notion of $W$-Sobolev spaces introduced in Simas and Valentim (2011) [7]. We then provide a characterization of these spaces in terms of a suitable Fourier series, and conclude the paper with some results on elliptic regularity of the problem $\lambda u - \Delta_Wu = f,$ for $\lambda\geq 0$.
