Zero set of Sobolev functions with negative power of integrability

Huiqiang Jiang, Fanghua Lin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Here the authors are interested in the zero set of Sobolev functions and functions of bounded variation with negative power of integrability. The main result is a general Hausdorff dimension estimate on the size of zero set. The research is motivated by the model on van der waal force driven thin film, which is a singular elliptic equation. After obtaining some basic regularity result, the authors get an estimate on the size of singular set; such set corresponds to the thin film rupture set in the thin film model.
