Bounds for elliptic operators in weighted spaces


Some estimates for solutions of the Dirichlet problem for second-order elliptic equations are obtained in this paper. Here the leading coefficients are locally VMO functions, while the hypotheses on the other coefficients and the boundary conditions involve a suitable weight function.
