The Hodge-Laplacian

Boundary Value Problems on Riemannian Manifolds

The core of this monograph is the development of tools to derive well-posedness results in very general geometric settings for elliptic differential operators. A new generation of Calderón-Zygmund theory is developed for variable coefficient singular integral operators, which turns out to be particularly versatile in dealing with boundary value problems for the Hodge-Laplacian on uniformly rectifiable subdomains of Riemannian manifolds via boundary layer methods. In addition to absolute and relative boundary conditions for differential forms, this monograph treats the Hodge-Laplacian equipped with classical Dirichlet, Neumann, Transmission, Poincaré, and Robin boundary conditions in regular Semmes-Kenig-Toro domains.
Lying at the intersection of partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, and differential geometry, this text is suitable for a wide range of PhD students, researchers, and professionals.

"The book represents the cumulation of a large body of work of the authors. Nonetheless, it is essentially self-contained, including the main geometric and analytic preliminaries. There are a large number of variations of settings. But the book is very well structured, avoiding potential confusions here." Mathematical Reviews
