Condensers with Touching Plates and Constrained Minimum Riesz and Green Energy Problems

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

We study minimum energy problems relative to the α-Riesz kernel |x−y|α−n, α∈(0,2], over signed Radon measures μ on Rn, n⩾3, associated with a generalized condenser (A1,A2), where A1 is a relatively closed subset of a domain D and A2=Rn∖D. We show that although A2∩ClRnA1 may have nonzero capacity, this minimum energy problem is uniquely solvable (even in the presence of an external field) if we restrict ourselves to μ with μ+⩽ξ, where a constraint ξ is properly chosen. We establish the sharpness of the sufficient conditions on the solvability thus obtained, provide descriptions of the weighted α-Riesz potentials of the solutions, single out their characteristic properties, and analyze their supports. The approach developed is mainly based on the establishment of an intimate relationship between the constrained minimum α-Riesz energy problem over signed measures associated with (A1,A2) and the constrained minimum α-Green energy problem over positive measures carried by A1. The results are illustrated by examples.
