The two-obstacle problem for the biharmonic operator

Luis A. Caffarelli, Avner Friedman and Alessandro Torelli

Vol. 103 (1982), No. 2, 325–335
Abstract

In this work we consider a two-obstacle problem for the plate, namely, the problem of finding a minimizer u of

∫
|Δv |2dx, subject to (v− h) ∈ H2 (Ω), ϕ ≦ v ≦ ψ
Ω                            0

where Ω is a bounded domain in Rn; n = 2,3. We prove that u C1,1 and that, in general, uC2.
