Poincaré Inequalities and Neumann Problems for the p-Laplacian

  • David Cruz-Uribe (a1), Scott Rodney (a2) and Emily Rosta (a2)

We prove an equivalence between weighted Poincaré inequalities and the existence of weak solutions to a Neumann problem related to a degenerate p-Laplacian. The Poincaré inequalities are formulated in the context of degenerate Sobolev spaces defined in terms of a quadratic form, and the associated matrix is the source of the degeneracy in the p-Laplacian.
