Abstract

The Neumann problem for the Poisson equation is considered in a domain Omega(epsilon) subset of R(n) with boundary components posed at a small distance epsilon > 0 so that in the limit, as epsilon -> 0(+), the components touch each other at the point O with the tangency exponent 2m >= 2. Asymptotics of the solution u(epsilon) and the Dirichlet integral parallel to del(x)u(epsilon);L(2)(Omega(epsilon))parallel to(2) are evaluated and it is shown that main asymptotic term of ue and the existence of the finite limit of the integral depend on the relation between the spatial dimension n and the exponent 2m. For example, in the case n < 2m - 1 the main asymptotic term becomes of the boundary layer type and the Dirichlet integral has no finite limit. Some generalizations are discussed and certain unsolved problems are formulated, in particular, non-integer exponents 2m and tangency of the boundary components along smooth curves.
